According to Eugenia Bunos, 354 thousand tons of butter were produced in France in 2020. Imports amounted to 175,000 tons, exports - 68,000 tons. France ranks second among butter producers in the EU (24 billion liters of cow's milk in 2020) and first in butter consumption in the world (8 kg per consumer per year). Evgenia Bunos recalled that to produce 1 kg of butter you need 22 kg of milk.

The OECD forecasts that global butter consumption will increase by 19% by 2026, with analysts noting growing demand for organic butter. Consumers are increasingly interested in oils with various fillings: oil + garlic + herbs, oil + honey, oil + fruit puree, oil + ingredients (nuts, dried fruits), oil + yogurt (25%).
