Following age-old traditions, MS Iceland Dairies make Skyr that is so delicious it will leave you with no doubt as to why it has been one of Iceland’s favourite food for over 1,100 years. When the Vikings settled on a harsh, volcanic island on the edge of the Arctic Circle in the ninth century, they quickly had to find ways to preserve food if they were to have any chance of surviving the long Icelandic winter. Somewhere between yoghurt and cheese, Skyr was a pleasantly surprising offshoot of using whey as a preservative.
