However, our gross profit was negatively affected by two main factors: an increase in domestic prices for key feed components (grain and oil crops), accounting for c.68% of the Company’s сost of sales of shell eggs, along with weak prices for dry egg products in both Ukraine and globally," Nataliya Vasylyuk, Chief Executive Officer of AVANGARDCO IPL, commented.
