 Canada Is Getting 4,000 Tons of Emergency Butter  

Canada, a leader in butter production, is suffering from a massive butter shortage just in time for the holidays. In fact, the Canadian Dairy Commission is having 4,000 tons of butter ordered for the country. The butter will come from the U.S., New Zealand, Ireland, Belgium, and Uruguay.


Since 2014, “there has been an increase in butter consumption,” according to Canadian Dairy Commission spokesperson Chantal Paul in an interview withLa Presse. The shortage comes the price of butter has dropped in recent days due to a glut of the product, according to Bloomberg. Spot cash butter fell 18% to $2.30 per pound, which was reportedly the largest drop in 11 years.
