The price of eggs has gone up almost 20 percent in the last year.

Stats NZ data showed the food price index rose to 8.3 percent higher than a year ago - the biggest annual increase in 13 years.

Grocery food prices were the main driver of the annual increase, particularly eggs and some dairy products.

Egg Producers Federation executive director Michael Brooks spoke to Guyon Espiner.
