Brief History of Elite Bakery in Burnaby BC, Providing Wholesale Classic Danish Pastries to Metro Vancouver and Throughout Canada Since 1968
Elite Bakery was founded in Vancouver BC back in 1968 by Magnus (Mark) Larsen. Magnus began baking at the tender age of 13 while living in Farvejle, Denmark. Through years of
back breaking labour, Magnus learned to bake the Danish traditional way.
Traveling from Farvejle Denmark to Vancouver in the late sixties, Magnus brought with him authentic Danish recipes, techniques and a unique
taste of Denmark to open his own Danish pastry shop. Starting small, the retail bakery soon became popular within Vancouver's European community. People were beginning
to take notice that this new baker from Denmark was something special.
Elite Bakery's unique Danish products' popularity created a dedicated wholesale following. Retail outlets like coffee shops, hotels, businesses
around the Whistler Resort area and major companies like IKEA began to offer our classic pastries that Elite Bakery still produces today.
Over the years, Elite Bakery has satisfied the desire of anyone looking for fine Danish Baking. Our pastries are one of a kind and we realize that
that a tasty dessert is a part of anyone's culture so our products take on a special significance.
We only use the finest quality ingredients and "No Animal By-Products" to ensure your dessert eating experience will be a memorable one.
