Concentrated Butter for Direct Consumption
Welcome to the scheme information page on the aid for concentrated butter intended for direct consumption.
The aim of this scheme was to dispose of surplus butterfat by encouraging manufacturers to sell butteroil direct to the retail trade for direct consumption, i.e. use in the home, hospitals, restaurants etc. The scheme operated on a tender basis.
A subsidy was paid on butteroil manufactured to a set specification, packed and taken over by the retail trade within set time scales.
Tenders under the scheme were suspended from 12/09/07 by Regulation (EC) 1039/2007. The scheme was formally
abolished in the CAP health check & the scheme regulation 1898/2005 was repealed by Comission Regulation (EC) No
452/2009 in May 2009
