  • Creator History
    The Butter Information Council was formed for the generic promotion of butter, in 1954. It became a limited company in 1981, and changed its name to the Butter Council. The Council aimed to promote butter sales, provide information about butter and combat its rivals the margarine companies. The Council represented the farmers of Denmark, the Republic of Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand and United Kingdom. It was financed proportionally in relation to UK market size by each country. The UK funding came from milk marketing boards. These Boards were abolished, and the replacement body, the Milk Development Council decided not to fund the Butter Council. The Council was wound up in December 1995.
