Our Manifesto

Something happens when you eat Icelandic Provisions.

You get full. Not “I had a big plate of pasta and need to take a nap” full. Rather, sustained. Ready. Full of energy and opportunity.

Coincidentally, that’s pretty much the spirit of the Icelandic people, to a person. Strong. Optimistic. Dogged. And hearty.

We don’t give up. We say “on with the butter,” and we get up and try again.

So, you might say when you’re full of Icelandic Provisions, you’re also full of Iceland, body and soul. Because we make our Skyr the Icelandic way. Thick, and creamy. Full of protein, not sugar. So while your challenges might not be the same as an Icelander’s, that doesn’t mean you can’t face them with Icelandic spirit.

 

Using the same recipes and cultures that have endured through the centuries, nourishing Icelanders since the days of the Vikings, Icelandic Provisions brings traditional Icelandic Skyr to the United States. It’s high in protein, low in sugar — and it’s rich, creamy and delicious.

Our Story

Through their multiple visits to Iceland over 20 years, Americans Jon Flint, Terry McGuire, and Gregg Rubin fell in love with Skyr. They loved how it sustained them through their adventures, while exploring Iceland’s dramatic landscapes and unique culture. The partners ate a lot of Skyr (for breakfast, lunch, and as a post-workout protein) and were convinced they needed to bring it to the US. But would only do so if they could bring the original, authentic Icelandic recipe and cultures.

So in 2013, they decided to meet MS Iceland Dairies, the oldest and largest farm cooperative in Iceland, and talk about introducing this unique product to the United States.

Today, Icelandic Provisions is co-owned by MS Iceland Dairies. Under the mentorship of their Skyr-masters, we ensure every cup of Icelandic Provisions Skyr is made the Icelandic way: Thick, creamy and delicious.
