Brief History of Elite Bakery in Burnaby BC, Providing 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.
