La Vaquita, Houston, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kansas City, Kan.-based Dairy Farmers of America, says it expanded into the butter category. Made with pure cow’s milk with no added growth hormones and no artificial ingredients, the new butter offers a fresh, creamy flavor for a variety of cooking and baking needs.

“La Vaquita is well known for delivering delicious and authentic Mexican flavors with our popular quesos and cremas, so butter, which is such an important cornerstone for cooking and baking, makes a perfect addition to our portfolio,” said Mihira Rami, director of brand marketing, La Vaquita. “This product will appeal to our customers, as it offers them a high-quality butter option from an authentic Mexican brand.”

Available in both salted and unsalted varieties, each 8-ounce package contains two 4-ounce sticks. The wraps used on the La Vaquita butter sticks are labeled with tablespoon measurements for ease of use and are also compostable. La Vaquita says its butter is currently available at select retailers in Texas.
