The shortage of butter that has recently started in France, “is not going to last,” assured Tuesday, October 24, Stéphane Travert, the minister of agriculture. “We are dealing with two factors : a decrease of the lactating cows and a decrease in the collection on the period of the summer, combined with a very strong demand from foreign countries which has resulted in higher prices “, explained the minister, invited on Sud Radio.
“We’re going to go on a collection to be more important, so I think things will gradually get back in order, he said. We have a dairy production very important one that will go up as we enter the fall and winter. “
