(and Siggi)

simple beginnings.
simple ingredients.

siggi’s began in 2005 when Siggi Hilmarsson felt homesick for a staple of his childhood diet: skyr. It’s a thick, creamy, high-protein yogurt from his native Iceland. The yogurts he found on shelves in the U.S. were much too sweet and artificial tasting for his liking.

from Iceland. to New York.
to the world.

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 was born.

our story

Hello, I am Siggi! I moved to the US from Iceland.

I found the yogurt on store shelves too sweet and artificial tasting.

So, in 2005, I made my own using a traditional recipe from Iceland with simple ingredients,

It had more protein than sugar, and a thick and creamy texture.

And then I made some more.

I hope you enjoy!

the simple skyr process

we’re on a mission to show
that there’s freedom in simplicity.

Let’s truly champion less as only siggi’s can. Let’s embrace the possibilities it provides. Let’s love what we have, not what others tell us we need because we believe once you strip away artificial expectations, less sets you free.


Just like our yogurt made with simple ingredients, we believe life is better with fewer distractions and more time spent on the moments that matter.
