Butter paper

About this object

This is the later design for the Owaka Canoe Brand butter paper. It was printed in large rolls as the factory moved to more advanced production.

In 1965 a new butter patting machine of Swiss manufacture was installed in the factory.

Every week boxes of butter were transported to Balclutha and Kaitangata as well as local stores. By 1973, the number of farms still dairying declined to the extent that the Owaka Dairy Factory closed in 1973.
