Country running out of butter

National News // July 22, 2020

The country is running out of butter.

It seems during the lockdown we all ate far more butter than normal. Couple that with the border closures, meaning shoppers who would normally do a weekly shop in a neighboring country stayed within Switzerland. 

The Federal Office for Agriculture has already authorized 1,000 tonnes to be imported and is now considering a further 1,800. 

It’s hoped that will keep us all going until the end of the year.
