We've traveled the world and the seven seas to find the best of the best. Never before seen in Japan: high-quality 100% grass-fed, certified organic butter from Australia. Not only have the cows been raised on pasture and grass-fed but the cows have also never been treated with growth hormones or antibiotics. The grass the cows have been eating is free of chemicals, pesticides, and GMOs. We guarantee you, it does not get cleaner than this. This is the salted version which contains sea salt.
Certified organic is not just a label - certified organic covers extremely strict rules about the protection of our environment, animal welfare, and consumers' health. Certified organic is better for the environment, better for the animals, and even better for the farmers. All pastures have been cleared of artificial chemicals and meet all organic standards for a minimum of 3 years. All images shown below are actual images of the farmers and their cattle.
Have you noticed? Why is butter so expensive in Japan?
We'd love to be able to offer you cheaper organic butter but unfortunately, Japan is severely lacking behind in organic produce, and to make matters worse, Japan's protectionism policies do not allow easy imports of organic dairy products such as butter and milk. These imports are heavily taxed and the milk and the Agriculture & Livestock Industries Corporation of Japan have established policies that require importers to pay them "royalties" that are meant to help Japanese dairy farmers to increase efficiency and increase production to be able to compete with imported goods. Most Japanese milk cows are grain-fed with imported feed and spend their lives in confinement. Fact is, Japanese consumers are paying a hefty price for milk and butter compared to any other industrialized nation and are faced with butter shortages every year.
