siggi’s begins in 2004 when Siggi Hilmarsson felt homesick for a staple of his childhood diet, skyr, a thick, creamy, high-protein yogurt from his native Iceland. The yogurts he found on shelves in the US were much too sweet and artificial for his liking.
Using a recipe Siggi’s mother sent, he began making skyr in his small New York City kitchen. It tasted like home.
Within just a few months, Siggi quit his day job, bought a whole lot of dairy equipment, and siggi’s dairy was born.
True to Icelandic tradition, siggi’s products do not contain any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, flavours or colours.
siggi’s dairy is fully committed to making rather delicious yogurt products with simple ingredients and less sugar (* our flavoured varieties contain 30% less sugar than the average of adult flavoured yogurts in the UK, 2018)
