    while i am not exactly sure what you are specifically looking for - curiousity prompted me to google and there is an importer that mentions word "clovis" on their website - i have never dealt with this company - but might be worth calling them (they're in vanc on Pandora St --- so says website -- 604 253 3115 )

      Thank you very much, Georgia Straight. I have been doing some research of my own and also came across Continental Importers. I was also able to zero in on a retail location for this product - Bosa foods on Kootenay, which is likely where I purchsed the first jar. I picked up 7 jars yesterday to enjoy and share with my friends - check it out!

        i've always meant to go to Bosa - i drive by on the freeway often but not sure exactly how to find it down on street level ... this is possible topic for another thread - but what items at Bosa are "must buy"?

        what is it you particularly like about Clovis?

        also - there used to be a really good mustard (beer, wine, apricot come to mind) made in Naramata - various flavours - they used to sell at the general store and at the farmer market in Naramata - but i haven't seen it lately - i think they went out of business, not sure why.

          Head south on Boundary from Hastings and hang a right one block north of E 1st Ave, on Gravely Street. It winds around to Kooteney. Or, turn left just north of 1st Ave if you are travelling N on Boundary.
          This mustard is tangy and flavourful. It tastes just great even when eaten alone on toasted rye bread, or with any food at all. It's not a spicy mustard, just a great flavour sensation.
          Bosa has a wonderful selection of olive oils, fresh pastas, condiments, gourmet spreads, and lots of cheeses. And of course all the sausages. Cookies too. Go crazy.

            Buy the truffle honey at Bosa's. Fantastic on good parmigiano.
