It could be markets any where, the mobility aspect makes you spread your distribution process all around. Once you know where and whom to distribute your eggs to, you will only need to go there directly.

To start buying and selling eggs, you must locate two or more farms depending on what capacity you want to work on, a poultry farm is where you can pick up eggs for sale. Before you can start picking eggs from farms, you must be a registered customer with the farm, and you must be consistent there, meaning you have to always pick up eggs weekly.

Other Working Tools

The basic tool needed for this business is empty crates, it could be paper crates or plastic crates. You can buy crates of 00 pieces at N10,000 or N5,000 if you choose to buy the paper crates , the total number you will need to run your business now depends on you. Note that the paper crates are more protective to your eggs, it reduces the number of cracks you will realize from transferring your eggs, and it is cheaper as well but damages more quickly than the plastic ones.


Cost of acquiring a used vehicle constitutes almost 90% of your capital needed in this business. Once you are mobile, the only cost you will need to run this business for a start is N80,000, with this amount you can buy 120 crates of eggs. A crate of egg can cost N650 or less  from farm depending on the size you choose to buy, any balance left will be incurred on fueling your vehicle and other road expenses.

Potential Profit In Eggs Supply Business

In this business, you are your own boss and you will decide how much profit you want to make in a week. Depending on any size of egg you choose to buy, you will gain profit of N100 on a crate of egg if you sell as a whole seller but if you choose to sell as retailer you can have profit of N300 on a crate. If you restrict yourself to selling just 100 crates of eggs weekly, that means you will realize profit of N10,000 weekly and this is just N40, 000 monthly.


This is how you determine your profit. Setting a target to sell 1,000 crates of egg per week will mean you will realize  100 x 1,000 = N100,000 weekly, multiply this per month, that is a whooping sum of N400,000 profit monthly. If you deduct your monthly expenses from this amount am very sure you will still have a reasonable amount to save.

Buying and selling eggs might look odd to you but concentrate on how profitable it is and stop waiting for gainful employment in that oil and gas company that may not come until when your responsibilities are enormous. Keep yourself busy and be productive.
