Cheeses from New Dairy Company Hit the Stores

A new dairy company, Kú, which produces cheeses outside the milk quota system, has sent its first products to the market, a soft Brie-like cheese called Ljúflingur and a soft blue cheese called Ödlingur.

The company is run by the family of Ólafur M. Magnússon, the former director of dairy company Mjólka. He told Fréttabladid that to begin with, they will concentrate on making cheeses based on French recipes.

Kú employs six persons, four of whom work at the company’s factory in Hafnarfjördur and two of whom are based at the family’s dairy farm in Kjós, southwest Iceland. “We call in extra people when we need help with packing,” Magnússon said.
