The People

Owners: John and Christine van der Lieck

About Oyama Sausage Co.

We opened our store on Granville Island in the amazing Public Market in 2001, moving to Vancouver from the Okanagan, where we were in business for 15 years. The business is owned by John and Christine van der Lieck. John is a fifth generation master sausage maker from Europe who has worked all over the European continent and is a true master in the trade of artisanal charcuterie. Our background is German and Dutch. At varying times, we make over 400 products, from patés and terrines to salamis, to hams, prosciuttos and many other dry cured treats, to sausages (dozens of links – fresh and smoked), pork pies, sliders and snacks, taking inspiration from many different ethnic backgrounds. These products are handmade in our kitchen in Vancouver. Our wonderful products are made with Canadian inspected free range, organic or family farm raised meats (pork, beef, bison, duck, elk, chicken, turkey and more), with natural herbs and spices sourced from all over the world. We carefully source all our ingredients, only the best will do! You will find many of our products in many of Vancouver’s fine restaurants and eateries.
