Recent ban on battery cages in European countries had made egg availability scarce for bakers . Bakers are now using egg substitutes for their recipes .
European union ban on battery hen cages is due to protest against stuffing hens together in cages . Poultry owners have asked for some time to switch over to alternative methods to house hens . This made egg shortages in market and egg costlier to bakers .
Egg replacers or Egg liquid substitutes demand have risen and companies like Arla Food ingredients and Kerry ingredients forsee rise in their sales . It would take few months for bakeries to have normal supply of eggs . Spoke person for European Union 's Agriculture and Rural development has predicted that the problem is temporary as per past experience .
