asahi.com : Where’s the butter? Shortage of milk spreads stocks thin – ENGLISH

At an elementary school in Osaka Prefecture, the children’s favorite butter-flavored buns used to be served once a week. The tasty rolls were dropped from the lunch menu in February.

The changes were not made for nutritional reasons; it was simply because butter was in short supply.

Domestically produced butter is scarce at retail stores because of a shortage of raw milk and higher prices of butter imports.
