NAMAKKAL - In Tamil Nadu’s Namakkal district, poultry farmers are feeling upbeat thanks to recent egg exports to Malaysia, where a shortage has been triggered by the war in Ukraine.

India exported eggs to Malaysia for the first time in December, sending over five million that month at US$27 to US$28 (S$35.50 to S$36.80) per carton of 360 eggs. While there are no orders for January, exports are expected to resume in February, said those involved.
