The New Zealand Difference

New Zealand is known for its wide open spaces, a natural environment, and year-round outdoor grazing systems. This makes for healthy grass-fed beef animals, great nutritious beefy bones, and world-class ingredients.

The New Zealand Difference is about more than our provenance offering – it defines what makes us unique, what matters to us, and how we partner with our customers to support the success of their brands.

As Nature Intended, With a Little Help from Us

We’re dedicated to maintaining the natural goodness in our broths and extracts just as nature intended. Our experienced team is led by an award-winning New Zealand Food Process Engineer (PhD) with expertise in meat science and food safety. While nature provides the nutritional qualities, our food science expertise provides a pure process for a healthful rich formulation.

Grass-fed, pasture raised beef bones are a rich source of essential vitamins and nutrients. Butler, our premium range of bone broths and extracts provide a New Zealand-natural source of glucosamine, collagen and protein reported to deliver a range of health benefits – ready to enrich your recipes.
