The Good Oil meets Westgold

Westgold Spreadable butter made with The Good Oil Sunflower Oil

The combined taste of two New Zealand iconic brands

Westgold’s new spreadable butter is a blend of its award-winning creamy butter and The Good Oil sunflower oil.

Spreadable right from the fridge, Westgold’s new Spreadable Butter with our sunflower oil is a unique and special product. It has that golden colour and delicious flavour that Westgold is renowned for, and is very creamy, just like their block salted and unsalted butters.


The pride of the South Island of New Zealand

The Good Oil and Westgold have much in common as brands of quality South Island products. The Westgold story centres around milk sourced from cows grazed on grass on a small number of West Coast farms below the majestic Southern Alps. The fresh cream is then churned by master butter makers using the traditional Fritz Churn method, while The Good Oil sunflowers are grown in Canterbury and Otago.


New Zealand’s finest blend of local ingredients

Combining the rich and creamy milk from the West Coast with gently extracted sunflower oil grown throughout the South Island. These carefully selected natural ingredients create an exceptional spreadable butter. Taste the difference of New Zealand’s best with our unique combination of ingredients.


Pure & Golden Cold-Pressed Sunflower Oil

We take pride in our pure and naturally golden oil, created through a gentle cold pre-extraction process that avoids heat or chemicals. Our growing process is free of genetically engineered components and is environmentally conscious, ensuring a quality product that is safe for you and the planet.

Ideal for roasting, frying, dressings, baking and BBQ’s. Due to the premium high oleic seed and cold pressing process, The Good Oil maintains the delicious flavour through low to high temperatures – a versatile cooking oil perfect for everyday use.

What does high oleic mean?2023-04-18T02:56:14+00:00

Oleic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid. Using High Oleic oilseed, means the Good Oil has a higher monounsaturated fat content and which influences the heat stability of the oil and produces a higher smoke point with lower saturated & polyunsaturated fat content.
