Icelandic Super-Yoghurt to be stocked at Booths stores

The first farm in Britain to make an Icelandic-style super yoghurt, has won a contract to stock 16 Booths stores across the North of England.

samHesper Farm, near Malham in the Yorkshire Dales, started producing skyr last year and has been increasing its stockists ever since.

Booths are the first supermarket chain to stock to super-nutritious product. Sam Moorhouse, 23, of Hesper Farm Skyr said: “We are delighted to be working with Booths. They value quality and provenance, supporting British farming and independent producers. It’s fantastic that our skyr will now be available for even more customers to enjoy.

Since launching, Hesper Farm Skyr has been awarded a gold star in the Great Taste Awards, as well as scooping Best Yoghurt and Supreme Product at Deliciously Yorkshire’s awards last year.

Skyr, is similar to yoghurt, but it is three times higher in protein and calcium than the standard yoghurt equivalent, naturally low in sugar and contains no fat. Hesper Farm Skyr’s rich, creamy texture has been a hit with customers across the county, and it has been supplied to restaurants across the country.

Now made at a purpose-built dairy on the family farm in the dales, Sam learnt how to make the product in Iceland, where it has been a staple since Viking times and he uses a heritage Icelandic skyr culture dating back to 874.

Booths will stock the Original, Vanilla and Blueberry flavours at the following stores: Clitheroe; Penwortham; Kendal; Chorley; Ripon; Hesketh Bank; Penrith; Carnforth; Ulverston; Fulwood; Knutsford; Keswick; Lytham St Annes; Garstang; Burscough; New Poulton
