UK – Arla Foods, a global dairy company and co-operative, has expanded its number one butter brand to Lurpak Softest; a new soft blend butter that is spreadable straight from the fridge.

Lurpak is UK’s number one butter brand, which has now combined the great taste that Lurpak is renowned for with the softest, most spreadable butter ever.

According to the company, spreadability is the most important factor for shoppers when choosing which butter or spread to buy, closely followed by taste.

Lurpak Softest is therefore a new recipe format that gives consumers another choice in the butter and spreads category.

Made with all natural ingredients, the new innovation is a no compromise solution for creating easy, tasty food.

“Research shows that 92% of consumers spread butter straight from the fridge so we really wanted to address the issue of spreadability which we know is a barrier to purchase.

With the new recipe we have created for Lurpak Softest, we can tap in to the increasing consumer demand for convenience, but with the taste and naturalness of butter,” said Lucy Hurrell-Morgan, Brand Manager for Lurpak.

“We know that many consumers opt for different products depending on the usage occasion but with Lurpak Softest, it has the taste of butter for those special moments along with the practicality to use every day and master good food in a hurry.”

The launch will be supported through the line, across all consumer touch-points, including a brand new TV creative, VOD and cinema, outdoor, digital, experiential & in-store activations from 1st June.
