Margarine has become a major part of our diet and overtaken butter in popularity for use in many applications. 

The growing vegan market and changing dietary requirements have contributed to manufacturers moving away from butter to margarine.

However, some bakeries choose to continue using butter based on traditional recipes, and A S Harrison & Co also has viable products for those customer needs.

A S Harrison & Co margarine is created with superior quality, reliability and consistency and above all, full traceability from farm to fork.

For customers interested in butter blends, it has recipes with butter content ranging from five to 50 per cent.
