Since she was a young girl, Elizabeth Lie, founder and owner of Elki Gourmet, has had a passion for great food. Little did she know that her passion for the food world would be fulfilled by a company her father, Gunnar, started "unintentionally" in 1984. Her father was already the head of Norpro, a successful kitchenware business. He had no intention of starting another business until a couple of people from Scandinavia asked that he help them sell their homemade preserves from Denmark under the label Scandinavian Delights. After declining a couple times, he agreed to take the preserves to a gourmet products trade show. Little did he know, the preserves would sell so well and create a following. Elki was born!
Years went by and the Scandinavian Delight Preserves' sales grew and grew. During her summer break in college, Elizabeth helped out at Elki and realized she wanted to be a part of the gourmet food industry. In 1995 she came to work at Elki full time and, after a few years, bought the company.Elki uses only the highest quality ingredients to create the finest specialty food products, both importing and creating original recipes domestically. They maintain a solid reputation in the gourmet food industry and are the recipients of several national awards for their products.
