    Egg industry facing "cartel" charges.

    Post by Admin on Wed 24 Dec 2014, 11:44 am

    Egg industry faces legal crackdown over alleged 'cartel' attempt.

    Consumer watchdog claims egg lobby group conspired to inflate prices by slaughtering chickens and dumping eggs.

    The egg industry faces court action after an alleged attempt to keep prices artificially high by slaughtering egg-laying chickens and burying eggs.

    Read this in The guardian here: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/may/29/egg-industry-faces-legal-crackdown-alleged-cartel-attempt

    Ok, this has happened in Australia, but I wonder if our own egg-producing groups are doing it too ?

    Am I just paranoid here and am I worrying about nothing ?




    Hi Angie-Baby.

    While roaming around the site I found this thread-start by you that was in a section that it should not have been in.

    It was in The Basket of The Forum and access to this forum is usually only reserved for management personnel.

    I hope you do not mind me moving it to the top of the General Consumer Forum ?

    Regards.

    Papa.

    Thanks Papa, for transferring that old post of mine into the right forum. I have no clue about why it was in what you call "The Basket of the forum" as I have never seen that forum-heading anywhere here. Suspect

    THAT "forum" is only able to be accessed by special members, and I have no clue why the software here allowed you to do that.

    Anyway, there was no harm done as the actual post is solid and correct.

    NOW..... about the posting itself Smile

    Even although that goes right back to May I have to admit that I heard nothing more in the news about this.

    It looks as if the egg-manufacturers have managed to sweep that allegation under the carpet.

    I will give it a Google and see what I come up with.

    Here's what I found from The Australian Mondaq:
