An analysis of fluctuations in prices of basic edible goods during the year to March 16 shows eggs had the highest annual price rise, going up by around 34%.
The noticeable rise in egg prices is due to the outbreak of avian flu that led to the cull of some 27 million chickens and inflicted losses to the tune of about half a billion dollars. Subsequently, both chicken and egg supplies were reduced and prices went up, IRNA reported. 
According to the CEO of Livestock Affairs Support Company, affiliated with the Ministry of Agriculture, the outbreak has now been contained.
The government turned to imports during the outbreak to fill the market void and meet domestic demand.
