good find op, heat added
£1 in Morisons
Sorry - the days of expensive butter are over. And even at the 'offer' price of 2 for £2 this is 33% more expensive than Aldi's own label British butter at just 75p for 250gms.

Not only that - it's actually Country Life with a different label.
Is this actually Spreadable....? Don't get me started on lurpak .... ' so called spreadable ' with a hot poker maybe lol

​No. It's butter. Anything described as spreadable isn't butter.

​obviously an own brand or "phantom" brand is going to be cheaper. when will people read into the fact the aldi adverts save you £xx when you switch from branded product shop to aldi.. if I switch to Morrison's own label it's the same.. wake up people! oO

You're taste buds are being misled by the label and the advertising then. If you look at the Aldi salted butter, you'll find it has a FP046 code showing that it's made in the Gower View Foods creamery in Wales. The very same code that appears on Country Life butter. And since butter is made only from cream, with a very small percentage of salt, the two can only be identical.

​Okay, but that is comparing Aldi and country life - not Anchor.

Nobody said it was Anchor - I said it was Country Life. However, since you ask, the Aldi unsalted butter IS Anchor - code UK WQ108 gives the game away.

​But Aldi Unsalted is unsalted, whereas Anchor is salted. They clearly aren't the same thing by that response.

You're really making yourself look silly here, aren't you? Why don't you just give up or at least do a little online research - it'll take you about 15 seconds:

Country Life is made by Dairy Crest using British butter. Gower are a contract packer who will pack butter from anyone, including the cheap supermarket own label. Most cheap butter is imported in bulk from New Zealand and Ireland. Anchor now pack in Wiltshire after many years of using New Zealand butter, now use British butter. All butter should be cheap at the moment, cream prices are plummeting as is the farm gate price of milk. I'm surprised the farmers haven't been out protesting.
