New Indigenous charcuterie business hopes to inspire conversation and learning – Vancouver Is Awesome

A new food business to get excited about.

It is also the name of a new Indigenous-owned charcuterie delivery service based in Vancouver. Tawnshi charcuterie boxes are filled with foraged seasonal ingredients, cured meats, cheeses, preserves and baked goods that celebrate Indigenous culture and connection to the land.

Partners in life and business Marina LeClair and Trevor Jansen, self-identified consummate hosts and real foodies, founded the business last year after COVID interrupted their work and social connections.

“Our place was a central hub for social gatherings. We loved connecting conversations over great food,” they share with V.I.A. over email.

LeClair is Metis, from the Red River settlement in Manitoba, with a background in hospitality and the service industry and Jansen comes from the Gitksan Nation in northern B.C. and has over 15 years of experience in business, marketing, and content creation.
