Icelanders Losing Interest in Making Liver Pudding

The sale of raw material needed to make traditional slátur, blood and liver pudding, has decreased by 15 percent in one year at the meat production company Nordlenska. People seem to prefer buying ready-made versions of the delicacy.

Sigmundur Hreidarsson, production manager of Nordlenska in Húsavík, said he has noticed this development happening for the past few years, reports.

Some meat products from the slátur package, which contains sheep heads, stomachs, fat, hearts, livers, kidneys and blood, are still popular, Hreidarsson said. Liver was praised by a much-hyped Danish diet, so its sale has remained high.

The slaughtering season ends at Nordlenska tomorrow; more than 80,000 sheep were slaughtered this year.
