Per the Consumer Price Index, egg prices have spiked 66% since last year.

People around the globe have found themselves paying more for eggs at stores due to over 41 million egg-laying hens dying from the avian flu, but also as rampant inflation under the Biden regime causing prices to erratically jump among suppliers and subsequently among common consumer products. Egg prices have gone from $1.71 per dozen 18 months ago to an average over $7 per dozen today.

The Cincinnati-based grocery store Kroger is now selling the first carbon-neutral eggs in the United States.

Back in December 2021, Kroger Co., one of the largest grocery store chains in the United States, and Kipster Farms, a Dutch company, formed a strategic partnership to bring the “world’s first carbon-neutral, cage-free eggs to retail shelves in the U.S.”

“Simple Truth is excited to partner with the innovative team at Kipster to further elevate our brand’s purpose to be a force for good,” said Brad Studer, senior director, Our Brands for Kroger. “These Simple Truth and Kipster eggs will be produced in a closed-loop system that aligns with the highest health and welfare standards for people and animals. These sustainable, zero-waste eggs reflect yet another milestone in Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste mission to help create communities free of hunger and waste.”

The pioneering Dutch company Kipster Farms is partnering with Kroger and its U.S. supplier MPS Eggs Farms on the new carbon-neutral program.

The birds are raised in modern, solar panel-equipped henhouses, which are not only free of cages, but also include skylights and multiple garden areas where “the birds have trees, rocks, climbing structures and other things to play on,” as MPS Egg Farms Vice President Sam Krouse recently explained to Farm Flavor.

MPS built four of these newly styled henhouses in Indiana, after touring similar facilities in Europe.

Reducing Carbon Footprint:

Rather than eating traditional corn-based feed, Krouse’s hens eat repurposed bakery by-products, and their manure is turned into organic fertilizer.

In a statement released on December 2022, Kroger announced that the world’s carbon-neutral eggs finally dropped in the U.S. market.

The Cincinnati area and Michigan can now purchase the eggs. More farms are being developed in the United States, which means that by late spring of 2023, Kipster eggs will be available in more areas.

According to Kipster’s website, the farms are designed to closely align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
