Sustainable butter for pastry chefs

On a mission to Be Better together

We believe that we have to change what we eat, meaning that the future of food will need to become more plant-based. That’s why we’ve created Be Better plant-based butter alternative. A 1-on-1 replacement for one of pastries’ crucial ingredients: cow-butter. It has similar workability and quality, yet as it is 100% made from plants, it functions as a sustainable butter alternative. Be Better My Friend is on a mission to not only make plant-based pastries taste super tasty, but also to help people to feel good about their choices when it comes to decisions for ingredients and products. This means: no animal harm, no rainforest harm, fewer CO2 emissions and less use of scarce water.

Try it yourself

Replace cow-butter 1:1 with Be Better plant-based butter and see for yourself how easy it can be to make high quality pastry that is better: for the planet, for your pocket and for your palate!

1-on-1 replacement,
1-to-0 concessions on taste

Our main goal is always to have the best 1:1 replacement and let pastry chefs be in control of the exact flavour they want to push within their creations and. We do not want chefs to make any compromise on taste. This is why we have chosen to design Be Better plant-butter having a neutral flavour. To keep it clean but also to make it a perfect flavour carrier which brings forward the often hidden fine flavours of fruits, chocolates and spices.
