The packaging

From its packaging in practical plastic dishes through to more traditional aluminium foil options, with variants organised to meet the demands of the various European countries, Agral Butter is sure to have the butter packaging you require.

One specific characteristic of the business is the mastery of the technique of moulded and semi-hand packed butters, in the spirit of "like on the farm". This type of packaging incorporates values of the land and authenticity.

Pat of butter

Pat of butter
  • 125, 200, 225, 250, 300g
  • Parallelepipedic packaging
  • Aluminium complex
  • Adjustable to the formats of the target countries

Aluminium packaging is the most commonly used worldwide for butter. There is therefore no one format.

"Manual" moulded butter

  • 125, 250, 500g, 1kg
  • Hand-packaged butter
  • Generations of know-how
  • Premium approach

Hand-moulded butter is the most traditional way of forming butter there is. This time-honoured tradition of packaging butter by hand in simple parchment paper is a farmyard culture. During the last century, all farms were busy churning the cream and transforming it into butter themselves. Hand-packaged butter was then sold direct. Agral Butter has preserved this traditional know-how and continues to offer hand-packaged butter today. This work requires great dexterity and is only done by women. The parchment paper is still used for its authentic feel.
However, a premium version has also proved to be a great success. Butter is hand-packaged in a complex offering a light barrier. Thereafter, it is placed in the bottom of a box and enhanced by a collar.

"Machined" moulded butter

  • 250g, 500g, 1kg
  • "Hand-packaged" look butter
  • Just like generations past

The "machine" moulded butter is the automated version of the hand-packaged butters. It resembles farmyard butters, particularly when packaged in parchment paper. It has the advantage of being more competitively priced than a hand-packaged butter. Agral Butter, with a range to suit everyone.
