Icelandic Lamb is a cooperative of lamb producers, farmers and abattoirs in Iceland safeguarding, protecting and promoting Icelandic lamb. Building a brand with our collective mark and working on product identification for Icelandic lamb on the relevant markets we encourage value creation in the sector, focusing on marketing to foreign visitors to Iceland and increasing the profitability of lamb meat exports.
As the Vikings set foot on Iceland over 1,100 years ago, their unique breed of sheep kicked and jumped past them into Iceland’s rich green pastures. That was the beginning of our sheep farming tradition, which we can proudly say is as old as the Icelandic people themselves. Today, the Icelandic Lamb Marketing Board is a collective of farmers, producers and abattoirs proudly continuing these long-standing traditions where all sheep- and lamb farms are small family-owned businesses.
Iceland is one of the world’s youngest land masses, surrounded by the unspoiled North Atlantic and on the cusp of the Arctic Circle. This is where our Icelandic Lamb and sheep graze in fertile, pristine pastures all summer long. The purity of the landscape ensures the matching purity of our Icelandic lambs – no other lamb breed can quite reach the same standard.
