Siggi’s Dairy began in 2004 when Siggi Hilmarsson felt homesick for skyr (pronounced “skeer”), a strained yogurt that has been a staple in the Icelandic diet for more than 1,000 years. The yogurts he found on shelves in the United States were much too sweet and artificial for his liking. He longed for the wholesome, unprocessed food of his childhood.
His mother sent him a recipe and with that, he began making skyr in his small New York City kitchen. Within just a few months, Siggi refined his technique, quit his day job and moved his humble skyr-making operation from his home kitchen to a full-scale dairy plant in Upstate New York.
True to Icelandic tradition, Siggi’s products do not contain any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, flavors or colors and are made with milk from family farms that do not use growth hormones. Siggi’s Dairy is committed to making delicious, healthier yogurt products with simple ingredients, rich in protein and not a lot of sugar.
