欧洲鸡蛋涨价 复活节彩蛋“伤不起”
This the season to paint Easter eggs in Europe. Now children, listen: Handle with care, they break easily — and this year there are not too many about so they are very expensive.
又到了欧洲的人们画复活节彩蛋的时节了。孩子们现在可得听好了:小心拿好你们手中那易碎的鸡蛋——今年它可是物以稀为贵呀!


Demand for eggs traditionally reaches its peak around the Easter holiday. This year, the egg industry has been hit by the European Union's new requirements for bigger, more animal-friendly cages for hens. The changes it brings have affected production and, combined with high feed cost, boosted consumer prices.
照传统来讲的话鸡蛋的市场需求量会在复活节假日期间达到顶峰。但今年,由于欧盟提出了要给母鸡提供面积更大且更好用的鸡笼的新规定,鸡蛋产业受到了冲击。这一规定带来的改变使生产受到了影响,加上饲养成本的提高,使得鸡蛋的售价上涨。


Ahead of Easter Sunday, on April 8 or 15 depending on the religious denomination, it makes for a costly tradition on a continent where millions have grown up painting or dyeing eggs as children and are now facing economic crisis.
在复活节(4月8日或15日,时间取决于不同教派的不同规定)到来之前,欧洲大陆上有上百万人将要延续这项从小到大的传统——绘制或印染彩蛋。不过现在,鸡蛋涨价和经济危机的双重影响,使它变成了一项昂贵的传统。


At Warsaw's Hala Mirowska market, the egg sales of Jacek Bechcicki are down as he faces customers grumbling about high prices. "The holiday will be poorer for some of my customers," Bechcicki said.
在华沙的 Hala Mirowska市场,亚采克·贝茨瑟其的鸡蛋销售量有所下滑,顾客们都向他抱怨鸡蛋价格太贵。“我的一些顾客大概要过一个较为潦倒的复活节了。”贝茨瑟其说道。


Pekka Pesonen used to color and dye eggs as a kid in his native Finland. As a rite of spring, "it was a celebration of new life," he remembers. Now, Pesonen is secretary general of a major European farm federation and is seeing how the new EU legislation has put a damper on this Easter season.
佩卡·培松嫩小时候在芬兰老家时常给鸡蛋染色、涂色。画彩蛋是一项在春天进行的仪式,“那可是对新生命的庆贺典礼呀。”培松嫩回忆道。现在培松嫩是一家大型欧洲农场联盟的秘书长,他觉得欧盟颁布的这道新法已经使复活节季不复从前光彩。


 "Obviously it has had an impact," he said.
“这项法规显然(对复活节的气氛)造成了影响。”他说。


The European Egg Processors Association says that EU-wide production of eggs since the Jan. 1 legislative change has dropped by 10 to 15 percent, or about 200 million eggs a week.
欧洲鸡蛋加工商协会称,欧盟范围内鸡蛋的产量自从1月1日法规变更后已经下降了10%~15%,即每周少生产约两亿个鸡蛋。


Prices have sometimes tripled on international markets over the past month, peaking at over 2 euros ($2.60) per kilogram, said Philip Van Bosstraeten of Ovobel, an international company which makes equipment for egg processing.
一家做鸡蛋加工设备的跨国公司Ovebel的员工菲利普·范·波斯特拉滕说,鸡蛋价格在过去的一个月里有时候翻了三倍,最高达到一公斤2欧元(约合2.6美元)。


The European Commission said that overall the price for table eggs in early March was 55 percent higher compared to the previous year.
欧盟委员会则称,三月初食用鸡蛋的价格比去年总体增长了55%。
