After a school exchange to Chicago when he was 16, and many trips to Canada with his dad, Jens Hertha knew he wanted to live in Canada. In 2005, he made the move from Germany to British Columbia. For a number of years he
worked in corporate banking industry, as he had at Deutsche Bank in Germany. Jens decided to make a drastic change to fulfill a dream to bring the flavours of German sausages and other tasty meats to his new home - the quaint fishing village of Steveston, BC. Jens opened D-Original Sausage Haus in February of 2012.
Fast forward to 2020, when Jens' friend of many years, Clint Green, returned to join D-Original Sausage Haus and become his business partner. Clint has always been a big fan of D-Original Sausage Haus and shares the values that Jens' established. The pair share a philosophy in delivering only high quality, hand crafted and delicious meats along with a high level of customer service in a relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. They are heavily involved in the community, supplying neighbouring restaurants with their products and supporting local charities.
In addition to a large selection of European meats, the store offers over 60 cheese varieties and international and local gourmet products. D-Original Sausage Haus also prepares custom platters, charcuterie boards and made to order sandwiches.
Jens and Clint continuously expand their product line through creative partnerships and direct involvement in manufacturing. The pair look forward to continuing to bring top quality products with amazing flavours to Steveston and the surrounding area.
