The production process

The cream is immediately pasteurized as soon as it arrives in order to eliminate harmful bacteria. It then begins a ripening process of 24-48 hours. This ensures that we achieve the correct acidity. After going through this traditional ripening process, the butter is freshly churned every day in authentic churns, a feature that is unique in Benelux. This is just how our forefathers did it, but ten times bigger. The churning process yields churned butter and buttermilk.

Our history as butter-makers goes back to 1899

A major dairy enterprise was set up in Büllingen in 1899, employing 224. Half a century later, in 1950, an initiative by local farmers transformed this into the Coöperatieve Melkerij van Büllingen-St Vith. Since 1996 we have had the right to use the labels 'Appellation d'Origine Protégée' [Protected Designation of Origin] and 'Beurre d'Ardenne' (Ardennes butter), making us one of only three European companies with its own certificate of origin.
