Our sea salt is the purest on the Earth, sourced from a deep salt water aquifer on the isolated west coast of South Africa. 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. Gathering Place Sea Salt is harvested by a fair trade 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 their community.
