vancouver island salt co.
After a decade travelling the world as a chef, Andrew's young family decided to plant their roots on beautiful Vancouver Island. Surrounded by pristine ocean waters, he wondered why Canada did not have its own Sea Salt. A friend told him that "if it could be done, it would be done"... Well, that sounded like a challenge and a bet for a case of beer was made. They spent a night on the beach boiling down sea water over a fire. In the morning, sea salt was harvested, he had won the bet (and the beer) and the rest is history.
They are very proud to offer the world a taste of truly unrefined Canadian sea salt and a selection of sea salt infusions, respectfully hand harvested from the wild coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
