Increasing egg prices hurt bakeries

December 12, 2003

Albany- The Cakery uses eggs for all but three of its products.

They go through 150 pounds of eggs every week and with the price for a dozen being at a 20 year high, the price increase is being felt.

"Of course that makes it a little harder to make ends meet. As a consumer, I'm not happy about the price of eggs, but I know that everywhere beef has gone up, milk has gone up, everything's gone up so it was natural that eggs would follow," says owner, Michelle Oaks.

Eggs cost about $1.50 to $2.00 per dozen right now.

Industry experts say prices hikes are due to more people turning to popular high-protein diets, thinning chicken flocks and holiday baking.
