Sourced from a deep salt water aquifer on the isolated west coast of South Africa, our sea salt is the purest on the Earth. The Antarctic Ocean water is naturally filtered, passing through miles of compressed seashells and sand to produce salt that is not contaminated. It is then sun and wind dried with no machine processing, and is hand-harvested and then sieved – never machine cut or ground. 

Sustainably wildcrafted and hand-harvested BC Kelp adds flavour, trace minerals, and iodine to this unique blend. In fact, this all-natural delicacy contains 82 trace minerals that our bodies need. 

Gathering Place Antarctic Pure Sea Salt & BC Kelp is a delicious, healthy seasoning that we hope you love as much as we do!

Welcome to Gathering Place Trading,

Where We Direct Source the Best Antarctic Pure Sea Salt & BC Kelp

About Our Antarctic Pure Sea Salt Partner

Gathering Place Antarctic Pure Sea Salt is naturally harvested by a Fair for Life FairTrade™ Certified and HACCP certified family business, which betters the lives of their workers through education, child care, and health care. They also provide a portion of their profits to support employee-selected projects in the South African community.

While most of the world’s salt is mined from non-renewable sources, our sea salt originates from the Benguela current in the Antarctic Ocean, on the West Coast of South Africa. The water flows through layers of shells into a deep aquifer. This natural process purifies the water and increases the abundance of minerals, while removing micro-plastics and other contaminants. This pristine brine is sun and wind-dried and the crystals are hand-harvested by our South African fair trade partners, never machine cut or ground. Our Sea Salt is unrefined and free from additives or preservatives.

About Our British Columbia Kelp Harvesters

Our company’s bull kelp is sustainably harvested from British Columbia’s crisp, clean ocean water by two family businesses who exclusively wildcraft. One of these small businesses is located on Cortes Island, where we live, and the other on Vancouver Island! In small batches, this nutrient rich superfood is selectively hand-harvested, naturally ocean rinsed, and slowly dried indoors to preserve its many vitamins, antioxidants, and essential minerals. We are honoured to provide you with this farmer-direct and sustainably sourced ocean goodness!

We proudly hand blend our Sea Salt and Kelp in small batches and then hand package it in-house on Vancouver Island, in Campbell River, BC.
