Lava Cheese was founded in 2017 by two friends who were sitting drinking beer and having some good old fashioned grilled cheese sandwiches. They were both picking at the crispy cheese at the end of the sandwiches - the best part! That is where the idea of Lava Cheese was born!

Lava Cheese is just pure cheese and it contains only 1% carbohydrates and 36% protein which makes it perfect for Keto diets.

We started selling in smaller deli shops around Reykjavík in 2017 and by 2018 Lava Cheese was available in most of the common grocery stores in Iceland. In 2018 Lava Cheese also started producing and selling in Sweden. Our main production facility is in Gotland but is moving to Norrköping in the spring of 2020.

Lava Cheese is now available in three types, Plain cheddar, Chili and Smoked.
