The Owner

Born into a farming family in the Western Cape of South Africa, farming and food production is a passion and skill passed down to Leon through many generations.

And when his journey brought him to Canada, he brought that skill & passion with him.

Over the years, Leon has utilized his extensive expertise & experience in specialty foods to not only serve the Afrikaans & Jewish communities of Vancouver Island but also individuals & retailers all across Canada/The United States!


Aubergine Specialty Foods, commonly called "a hidden gem in Victoria," specializes in delivering quality South African & Kosher foods to the Afrikaans & Jewish Communities of Vancouver Island.

Over the years, and hosting countless South African events, Aubergines' has grown into a highly-valued community cornerstone in Victoria, British Columbia.
