What sets Herbivore apart is its core ingredient. Coconut is renowned for its richness in lauric acid, an antimicrobial compound supporting the immune system.

Studies have shown coconut can lower LDL “bad” cholesterol while elevating HDL “good” cholesterol, demonstrating its heart-healthy attributes. Additionally, coconut is packed with medium-chain fatty acids, providing the body with immediate energy and potentially reducing fat storage.

Notably, Herbivore prioritises sustainability in its production process. The coconuts used in this premium plant-based butter come from a manufacturing partner based in the Philippines.

One of the remarkable environmental advantages of Herbivore is its significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to animal dairy butter.

With Herbivore's arrival in New Zealand supermarkets, consumers now have a planet-friendly choice in the butter aisle.

This premium plant-based butter offers a glimpse into a future where taste, health, and sustainability converge, at the same time challenging the traditional dominance of animal-based butter.
