For 90 years, Western Star Butter has been creating it’s iconic butter in Cobden, Victoria. A recipe that has been loved by Aussie families all over the country.
Made up of only two natural ingredients – cream and salt, Western Star Butter is deliciously simple. It’s what Aussie families have been adding to Nana’s cakes, their famous mashed potatoes and of course spreading across their toast and hot cross buns for generations.
