increase in exports of this commodity from Tamil Nadu as a result of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar

About 60 million eggs per day are produced in the Namakkal district and exported to Kerala, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and West Bengal.

As a result of increasing demand brought on by Qatar hosting the FIFA World Cup and rising egg prices worldwide as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, egg exports from Tamil Nadu’s Namakkal to Qatar have grown by more than double.

Around 700 of the 1,100 chicken farms in Tamil Nadu are situated in and around Namakkal. About 60 million eggs per day are produced in the district and exported to Kerala, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bengal.

“We typically send Qatar fewer than 10 million eggs per month. However, due to the world cup, the demand has surged to 20 to 25 million eggs each month during the past two months “said K Singaraj, head of the Tamil Nadu Poultry Farmers’ Association.

He claimed that because Turkey, the primary supplier of eggs to the Gulf countries, raised prices, they benefited and were receiving more orders. “One carton [360 eggs] from Namakkal is shipped to Qatar for $29 whereas that from Turkey is sold for $35,” the source said.

Singaraj stated that Oman was the major market for egg exports into the Gulf nations, which have seen an overall growth. “We’ll ship anywhere from 80 to 100 million eggs in November alone.”

The eggs, which weigh between 48 and 52 grammes each and have a three-month shelf life, are transported from Namakkal to Qatar via the ports of Thoothukudi or Chennai.

Director of Ponne Product Exports S Sasti Kumar said, “Quality-wise, it is the same, but there has been an increase in export quantity due to the football World Cup there.

The local market will see an increase in demand as a result of rising exports and the removal of excess eggs from the market, allowing poultry farmers to realise their full potential.

Farmers of poultry reported losses over the past two years as a result of Covid-19’s crippling effects on exports. According to V Subramani, head of the Tamil Nadu Egg Poultry Farmers’ Marketing Society, “Raw material prices have soared over the past two years, and some farms have shut down.” “Eggs are still sold for $5, which is not enough despite our high manufacturing costs.”
