A new dairy company, Arna, launched production in Bolungarvík, the West Fjords, this week specializing in products for the lactose intolerant. The first delivery of milk, buttermilk and yogurt has hit the stores.
Managing director Hálfdán Óskarsson told ruv.is that the company makes traditional Icelandic dairy products, both fresh and soured, without lactose suited for those who are lactose intolerant but enjoyable for all.
The project has been in preparation since early this year. Arna currently employ six people but Hálfdán expects them to increase to ten shortly.
