Butter prices are heating up.
Have you noticed the rising cost of butter putting a strain on production costs? The average European butter price skyrocketed by 28% at the end 2021, and has remained high so far in 2022.
Just a quick look at the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), which tracks the UK wholesale butter price, is a very depressing read.
The dramatic increase in the price of butter has been linked to many global factors. Issues like the rising costs of farming, with increased costs of fertiliser, feed and fuel is at the top of the list.
This is putting huge pressure on trying to cost-engineer food with butter being such a key ingredient for the unique flavour profile. Our friends in the bakery sector are finding it especially tough. Butter plays such an important role in both the texture and flavour of baked goods.
The forecasts predict that prices aren’t going to slow down anytime soon, so it is important a long-term solution is found to tackle the issue.
