Some Kind Words

Delicious Organic Teas!

Since 2016, when we discovered your company, we've enjoyed your organic teas every single day! We were amazed and overjoyed to be able to order our favourite Rooibos in bulk. Nothing better than to start and finish the day with a cup of organic herbal, caffeine-free tea!

Cooking with Sea Salt is the Best! 

I love your company's integrity and the fact that your sea salt is free of microplastics. Cooking with sea salt is the best, as it contains all the trace minerals we need to thrive, plus it tastes amazing and brings out the flavour of many whole foods I cook with.

Freshest Spices Available!

You provide the freshest and most flavorful herbs and spices I’ve ever found. In addition, all the products are ethically and sustainably sourced, with a focus on small farms. I also love how the packages let you know when a product is Canadian. Love how your company walks the talk!

Meet the Founders of Gathering Place Trading

We're Lovena and Ryan and we pride ourselves on doing things differently. In fact, we take standard business practices and stand them on their head.

In a world where companies are racing to be the fastest, we still ship by sea freight. In an industry where our competitors don’t know where their products come from, we know all our farmers by name. And in an era where everybody wants to pay less, we will gladly pay more if it supports a Canadian farmer.

We don’t want to be like everyone else. And we have a sneaking suspicion you might not want to either.

Glad you found us.
