The pristine shorelines of Vancouver Island make for the perfect “merroir” for creating world class sea salt. This is the home of Vancouver Island Salt Co.
Located on a stunning 400 acre farm with over 2 km of untouched ocean frontage on Oyster Bay, our salt harvestry sits halfway between the vibrant shellfish coast of Comox and the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’, Campbell River. The surrounding waters are glacier fed and bordered by old growth forests, keeping our water source clean and unspoilt.
Our sustainable production collects water at the exact point where the currents from the South of Vancouver Island meet the strong, cold currents from the North, making for a spectacular blending of minerals and tides that are constantly in motion.
Our sea salt is simply that, sea salt. It’s completely natural with over 30 trace minerals intact. That means none of the additives or chemicals so commonly found in mass-produced salts. The result, a difference you can taste.
Vancouver Island Sea Salt is produced responsibly and with respect the environment and our carbon footprint. We are a proud Supplier Partner of Ocean Wise.
Canada’s best restaurants have made Vancouver Island Sea Salt their salt of choice in cooking and finishing the dishes they serve. Since 2009, our passionate salt harvesters have worked diligently to develop processes that craft a sea salt worthy of the trust professional chefs and food artisans have placed in our products. Today, our all natural, hand-harvested sea salt is found in Canadian home kitchens from coast to coast and is prized around the globe by discerning chefs. We call this #saltlove.
