O blissful time above Svinesund! There are eggs on the shelves here.

Maximat in the Nordby shopping center in Strömstad has plenty of 18-packs of “daily eggs” at a promotional price of SEK 35.90.

Norwegians don't let themselves be asked twice on Maundy Thursday.

– Absolutely normal consumption, assures Chang Ngoc (39) from Stromen.

The father of the family has taken three cartons with him.

– There are eight of us in a joint family, so it lasts for two weeks.

– Was the house empty?

– Near my work in Oslo and my home in Strommen, I've seen a bit of everywhere. But no store has eggs, then you can't do much.

Egg cartons were in refrigerators and on several shelves when Viji visited the giant grocery store across the border on Thursday evening.

But if Netavichen is to be believed, Easter has never been like this. On Tuesday, Maximat ran out of eggs and Nordby Supermarket had to ration eggs.

In Norway, grocery stores are having trouble getting eggs to customers. Lack of eggs There is Well established – It was very bad at Easter time.

Nordura responded that they were giving away the same amount of eggs as last year at Easter, but believes that the focus on eggs has led to more people hoarding:

– We encourage you to buy only the eggs you need this Easter, writes Matilda Aronsen, communications consultant at Nordura.

Ida Ponsak found out Wednesday that not everyone follows the call.

– A woman filled a trolley and an entire luggage compartment with eggs at the metro in Lorenzgók. There must have been a couple of hundred cartons.

– Then it was empty, wasn't it?

– There weren't many eggs on the shelves then, no.

Ida Bonzak made a spontaneous trip to Maxey Mt with her mother Anne (54) and sister Lynn (21). Two packages of eggs are included in the cart.

– that is enough. In any case there will be some packing. Maybe cakes.

– Aren't you crazy?

– It's okay to share with others. We were a bit surprised to find eggs here.

– Is it strange that the house is empty?

– It can happen. But the worst thing is that people have to hoard everything for themselves.

  • Why is there a shortage of eggs? Nordura believes this is due to illness in Europe and a weak Norwegian krone, which has led to more people buying Norwegian eggs than usual. Also, more and more people are buying eggs in stores.
  • Who is Nordura? Nordura is a farmer-owned company and a cooperative owned by around 16,000 Norwegian farmers. Their aim is to facilitate farming throughout Norway, so that eggs and meat are produced in all parts of the country.
  • What's going on in the stores? Some stores have completely empty shelves, while others have received a fresh supply of eggs. It varies a lot from place to place.
  • What does this mean for Easter? When shopping for Easter breakfast, many people find that the stores are out of eggs. This may mean someone changes traditional Easter foods.
  • What happened last year? Farmers were paid to keep non-laying chickens because of the high number of eggs produced last year. So the situation has changed a lot in a year.
