The food factory

Service Category:


Matís operates a so-called food workshop. The food factory is in fact a kitchen and processing facility with a variety of equipment, appliances and utensils available so that it is possible to carry out a variety of food processing in the facility. Processing may take place provided that it has obtained the required operating license or certification.

One of the entrepreneurs who has worked on her projects at Matarsmiðjan is Eva Rún Jensdóttir at Cooking Harmony  

The company Cooking Harmony founded Eva Rún, together with her daughter, in charge of her production of gluten- and lactose-free pastries and groceries in 2016. However, she was no newcomer to cooking and baking without these ingredients. For a long time she had worked systematically to find a solution to the illness and allergic reactions that her daughter was experiencing. She was hidden in an improved diet. With a background in business, she saw an opportunity in the production of the pastry and food she prepared for her daughter and family, first that people from various backgrounds were interested in being able to easily get good gluten- and lactose-free food. Eva used the advice and facilities in Matís' experimental kitchen to begin with and then moved the production to her own premises.

At first, it mainly produced pastries, which were then sold on a large scale in various bakeries and cafes. Many people choose gluten- and lactose-free foods over others of their own free will, while others do so according to medical advice, for example due to food intolerance. The products from Cooking Harmony, however, do not give up on the "traditional" and "ordinary" products when it comes to taste, texture and quality. All products are produced on site and processed from scratch from high quality raw materials to ensure that they stand the test of time. For example, they produce their own butter to achieve the right taste in cream on cakes and when making caramels and similar delicacies.

As the popularity of gluten- and lactose-free products has increased, Eva has expanded its holdings at the same time. She now sells her products in various stores and you can buy bread and buns, cakes and cookies from Cooking Harmony in many places. She recently opened a restaurant and café in Bæjarhraun in Hafnarfjörður, in addition to which she has a catering service that offers a variety of banquets for all occasions, gluten-, lactose-free and some are completely milk-free and / or vegan.
