The 2022 award marks the second Gold and third trophy for Vermont Creamery’s Sea Salt Cultured Butter.

Vermont Creamery cultured butter first got its start in some of the finest restaurant kitchens in New York City, earning credibility amongst the most discerning chefs in fine dining. After gaining notoriety and momentum in food service, the brand launched successfully at retail just three years ago.
