(And as a current APUG advertiser, no less!)
It's just no longer a 60,000 eggs per day mass market game - presumably to the chicken's great relief. But just because the largest albumen player of its day chose to fold did not mean albumen printing folded with it.
So it is with traditional film photography now. The manufacturing base has similarly adjusted to a new reduced level of demand, and Kodak has chosen to reduce - and in many cases eliminate - their participation at that new level. Other manufacturers have chosen to stand pat, or to increase their participation. It's just business.
Kodak was at one point all about Photography, but Photography has never been only all about Kodak...
And as far as the egg farmers go, if today I should disdain purchasing modern, commercially-produced albumen paper and decide to go it alone, I need only buy a dozen eggs from the grocery store to have supported via the albumen process at least one egg farmer out there somewhere.
