Record butter prices are putting increasing pressure on Ireland's restaurateurs.
The price has soared following a global increase in the demand for dairy fats.
Irish restaurants are aso feeling the pinch, according to the CEO of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, Adrian Cummins.
"Businesses have been complaining about the increase. Butter isn't going to break the bank but businesses have to be conscious of their overheads," he said.
"This is an additional cost and another obstacle to face. And an increase in the price of a product inevitably means an increase in price for consumers."
