 Norway Facing Butter Shortage Following Diet Craze

Norway is facing an acute shortage of butter with its citizens emptying the national stockpiles by following a crazy "low carbs" diet which places an importance on increased intake of fats.

According to the country's biggest online auction site, 250 grams of butter is now commanding a massive $13, nearly four times its normal values.

The head of communications at TINE, Norway's biggest farmer-owned cooperative, Lars Galtung, said that sales had increased by more than 50 percent over the last two months and the price is expected to shoot up further with Norway's high import duties meaning that imports are not expected to meet the demand levels.
