About Us

Taste of the Island was an idea born from five students at Royal Roads University. 

Laila Belabas, Graeme Comberbach, Mitch Malyk, Connor Pickard, and Nicola Scott decided to create something that would bring joy (and delicious food) to all the people stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, while supporting and celebrating our incredible food and beverage industry here in Victoria.
