Omnom is a small artisan chocolate factory that has titillated the taste buds of its Icelandic patrons since it was founded by childhood friends Kjartan Gíslason and Óskar Þórðarson in 2013. Its innovative chef, Kjartan, has been working with chocolate for almost two decades and his wealth of experience has allowed Omnom to become one of the fastest growing chocolatiers in Iceland. They import the finest possible ingredients from around the world, including cocoa beans from Madagascar, Tanzania, and Nicaragua – always paying a fair price to farmers, ensuring that it is sustainable in the long term.
