This unique blend of Gathering Place Sea Salt and sustainably wildcrafted and hand-harvested British Columbia Kelp is a delicious, healthy seasoning full of trace minerals, iodine, and flavour!

Our Sea Salt originates in the Antarctic Ocean, which is why we named it Antarctic Pure. The swift Benguela Current brings this ice-cold water up the wild west coast of South Africa. This pure ocean water travels through a natural filtration system of layers of ancient seashell beds and sand into an extremely rare geological phenomenon – a saltwater aquifer.

Gathering Place Antarctic Pure Sea Salt contains 82 trace minerals, including 1800 ppm of magnesium and 2400 ppm of calcium! Much higher amounts than most sea salt! It has also been tested for microplastic contamination and contains absolutely zero microplastics. It is also heavy metal-free, with an incredibly low lead reading of less than 30ppb (parts/billion), ranking it in the top five safest sea salts in the world. 

Both our salt and our kelp are hand-harvested and this healthy, tasty blend is also hand-packaged at our facility in Campbell River, BC. 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.
