The entrepreneurs behind food firm Improper Butter are aiming to raise up to €500,000 in funding this year as they prepare to launch a new product and increase their sales in Britain.

Elaine Lavery and Hannah O’Reilly established the company in August 2013 with initial investment of €20,000.

They have since secured listings in more than 200 SuperValu stores as well as some Centra outlets and independent food stores.
