Scottish government looking at tackling butter price volatility

Published 9 October 17

The Scottish government is conducting a feasibility study into easing pressures on butter prices. The study will see if a collective buying and storing scheme is an option as well as looking at ways to tackle volatility in the butter market. The government expect the outcome of the report in “the next month or so”.

The Scottish Agricultural Organisation Society is carrying out the study, which is funded by the Market Driven Supply Chain project established by the Scottish government in March.
