The dairy TINE Meieriet Vest Vik has its own Cheese-Bar and is known for its famous cheese Gamalost ("old cheese").

The cheesebar is located in the center of Vik.

Old cheese from Vik is a solid mold cheese with roots dating back to the Viking Age. The cheese got its name because it was stored for a long time on the stallions. The cheese is made from skimmed sour milk, and is therefore lean and rich in protein. The taste is distinctive and powerful, sharp and aromatic. The cheese is juicy and coarse, and the color is golden brown. The cheese is protected as a "Protected geographical location", and has also been awarded the Norwegian Cultural Heritage quality label Olavsrosa.
