The 7-Eleven convenience store chain, the largest in Taiwan with just over 5,000 stores, on Wednesday hiked the price of its tea eggs from NT$8 (US$0.24) to NT$10 each.
According to 7-Eleven, the decision was made based on the fact that farm prices of eggs have climbed 25 percent in the past five years.
Council of Agriculture statistics showed that in December 2015, farm prices of eggs had reached NT$56.1 per kilogram, up 5.6 percent from a year earlier. [FULL STORY]
