The name Échiré first appears in records dating from the year 1218.
Local people have reared cows in this remote corner of France since time immemorial. The milk from these cows produces butter which has a subtle and exquisite taste, quite unlike anything else.
Échiré butter carries the prestigious label of origin AOC Beurre des Deux-Sèvres.
It was in 1894 that the Société de Laiterie Coopérative Échiré was established in the middle of Deux-Sèvres. At this place, there was a flour mill that disposed of pure abundant spring water. An ingredient that remains essential in the high quality of the Echiré butter. The producers are at the origin of the Echiré butter’s high quality. As such, they have established high standards of production that respect a strict quality charter that concerns not only the animals’ well-being but also the food quality through a specific land located in a 50km radius around the Echiré dairy. Known as one of the best butters in France, Echire butter is served in the finest dining establishments (which is why the French covet this butter and keep 85% of the production within France).
