Bringing high-protein skyr to the American market

Thor’s Skyr will nourish healthy eaters and snackers alike. Icelandic skyr is a cultured milk product made using a traditional Icelandic method. The result is a velvety texture with only 2% fat. It also contains more protein and less sugar than other dairy products.

Thor’s Skyr has an all-star team of co-founders including Terry Crews, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Dylan Sprouse, and Unnar Beck Danielsson. All of the co-founders have a passion for skyr, which we’re excited to share in. Bjornsson, who was World’s Strongest Man in 2019, even harnessed the nutrients of skyr during his intense training regimen leading up to the competition. The co-founders shared a dream to bring the best skyr to the American market. To ensure authenticity, they found a facility in Pennsylvania that uses Icelandic technology to create their product. We’re proud to support the team at Thor's Skyr, who are introducing consumers to a new and delicious healthy food.

Delicious and sustainable meat alternatives

Meati is making a difference by providing delicious and eco-friendly meat alternatives for everyone to enjoy. They use mushroom root, a nutrient-dense and sustainable protein source, to create a range of tasty protein options. Meati controls the entire process, from growing their own mushroom root with purified water and essential nutrients, to crafting perfect flavors and textures.

We love that the founders, Tyler Huggins and Justin Whiteley, are driven by a passion for science and the environment. Their commitment to transparency, quality ingredients, and mouthwatering taste sets them apart. Even better, Meati’s nutritional profile makes it a natural member of the superfood club, and provides a complete protein source rich in fiber, iron, B vitamins, and zinc. We’re thrilled to join Meati in the movement towards a sustainable food revolution.
