Lewis Road Creamery have signed a deal with Amazon-owned supermarket chain Whole Foods. The deal has been reported to be worth up to USD$5 million (approx. NZD$8 million) in the first year, and 400 tonnes of the butter is expected to be exported. The specialty organic supermarket sells the dairy company’s grass-fed butter in 270 of its stores in 37 states in the US. A 225 gram packet of the butter retails for NZD$11 in the supermarket, and Founder Peter Cullinane reports that Whole Foods customers value genuine grass feed and free-range products and also keep an eye out for non-GMO products.
