Skyr (pronounced skeer) is a remarkable dairy product unique to Iceland. A smooth, rich flavour and creamy thick texture gives all-natural skyr a distinct place of its own on the dairy shelf! Now in fresh-fruit flavours, children and adults all love skyr!
The first Nordic settlers to Iceland brought centuries of food-preserving skills with them. Dairy products took on new qualities in Iceland thanks to the unique climate and environment.
Our Skyr is the only product made with Original Icelandic Skyr Cultures. But what does that really mean?
The art of making Skyr is especially noteworthy. Skyr is made from skimmed milk which is a naturally fat free milk product.
When making Skyr a large amount of milk is used but about three to four times more milk is needed to produce one can of skyr than one can of yogurt.
MS Iceland Dairies (Mjólkursamsalan) is a cooperative organisation that includes over 700 of Iceland’s family-run dairy farms and other milk producers across the country. We have over 450 employees in non-farm roles.
The mission of the company centres on milk production and the making of high-quality skyr, cheeses, butter, and other dairy products. We are proud to serve both our domestic and representing Iceland in export markets.
