In an effort to keep the prices of eggs stable, the government again on Thursday approved the imports of six crore eggs.

The government gave approval to six companies to import one crore eggs each, read a commerce ministry press release.

On September 18, four companies got approval to import four crore eggs and each company can import one crore eggs.

As the price of eggs soars abnormally, members of the Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection are conducting drives in different wholesale markets in the city and realising fines.

According to the Bangladesh Egg Producers Association, the country requires between 35 and 40 million eggs per day to meet demand. And the majority of the eggs are sourced from domestic producers.
