At Thorverk we have not had many visitors for a while due to precautions against possible Covid infections. However, with a short notice, we were happy to receive Mrs. Eliza Reid, the wife of the president of Iceland, Mr Gudni Th. Johannesson. The visit was informal and a part of their personal visit to Reykholar.

She had coffee with the staff and a brief introduction to the more than 40 years history and operations of Thorverk. A tour through the factory was a must and a great number of questions needed to be answered. As always, it is fun and interesting to have interested visitors asking different questions. Of course she had some questions to answer as well, f.ex. isn´t it fun being the First lady?

When picked up by her husband, they both promised to come again and for an official visit at that time. And we promised to have some snack with the coffee.
