Eggs in Africa

The egg industry is fragmented with a few major players and a number of small and medium-sized producers.

African Egg Importers

Mozambique was the main importers of South African eggs during 2011. It commanded 84% of South African eggs during 2011 followed at a distance by Angola accounting for 10%. Zimbabwe dropped from being the greatest importer (45%) of South African eggs in 2010 to being the second least importer with a share of 5% during 2011. Kenya had a share of 1% in the export market of South African eggs.

Grading Eggs

Eggs are differentiated according to the production systems as follows

Organic Free Range
These eggs are produced by free-range hens that are fed on grains and pulses that are grown without pesticides, chemical fertilisers or any other genetically engineered products.

Omega 3-enriched
Omega 3 fats, which are excellent for brain functioning, the immune and nervous systems and healthy hearts, are found in oily fish. The hens that lay these eggs are fed salmon oil as part of their diet. Omega 3-enriched eggs are not necessarily free range.

Free range
The chickens that lay these eggs are exposed to sunlight and grass pastures. They have room to scratch, flap and bath in the dust. Their diet is not necessarily vegetarian, it could include insects or fishmeal.

These eggs are produced by chickens that live inside, but are not kept in cages. Barn eggs are laid by chickens that are fed a vegetarian diet of grains and pulses.

Grain fed
Grain-fed chickens don't eat commercial feed, which can include fish and chicken meal. These eggs are not free range, and not necessarily barn. The chickens may be kept in cages.

These are the cheapest eggs to buy, and so make up the bulk of the eggs consumed in the country. The chickens are kept inside, in cages. They are fed with meal, which includes commercially farmed grains and pulses and processed fish and/or chicken meal. Electric lights are kept on much of the time to encourage the chickens to lay.
