In 1983, Vancouver needed croissants, so Vancouver Croissanterie Limited was established. Later, the name was simplified to Vancouver Croissant Ltd and registered a trade mark and logo under Gourmet Croissant.
The goal from the very beginning was to make quality croissants with the best natural ingredients, following the old fashioned way i.e. handmade. Years passed by and the market asked for more varieties of croissants, like chocolate-filled croissants and ham & cheese to name a few. Vancouver Croissant Co use the best available ingredients: unbleached wheat flour, Belgium chocolate; no artificial color, preservatives or flavours. They also make a variety of croissants with certified organic ingredients*. Their staff have been trained in the traditional method of making croissants by hand.
