Well, at dinner a couple of nights ago in the company restaurant I noteiced that the little packets of butter are from Campina Buttergold B.V. from Tilburg, NL.
I always thought it was funny here in the Middle East that the butter comes from so far away. Though I recall places like New Zealand not Holland. But I guess if it comes in air freight, refrigerated?
And it says on the bottom of the little packet that it is best before about one year from manufacture date.
