UK egg statistics


The ‘latest UK egg statistics’ publication contains the latest quarterly UK statistics about eggs.

It’s published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

This report is the output from a demo of using the {drake} package for R. It’s not an official government publication.


Below is a recreation of Figure 2 from the UK egg statistics notice document. It shows egg production over time, split by production methods.

The eggs are class A and there are 360 eggs per case.

The data are available from the UK egg packing station throughput and prices dataset. The data set is Crown copyright but may be reproduced without formal permission or charge for personal or in-house use.
