About Us - Organic Solar Evaporated Sea Salt
The story of Jersey Sea Salt
Jersey is also famous as a financial centre, an industry that Dave worked in for 18 years, however, Davids longing to create a different environment in which to live and work was too strong a calling to ignore.
Matt also felt he had done his time in his 'day job'. Matt studied fine art in London, moved back to his home Jersey and started a interior design and building company. “I was happy but needed something new, something that was unique” that’s when Dave suggested “lets start making the sea salt!”
How is Jersey Sea Salt made?
So, how to do it? “lots of experiments, from converting an old gas BBQ, to building pans under glass, we've tried it all. Until we came up with our bespoke salt houses, which enabled us to solar evaporate larger quantities of sea water." Dave stated “Matt has designed our salt houses that are specific to the climate in Jersey and he claims that we are the only company to do it in this manner however there are others that use a similar process”.
The team is not only Dave and Matt but a network and support from family, friends and the Jersey community has helped them to create a sustainable and environmental friendly company.
Matt and Dave can be found on the weekends paddling their kayaks around the coast of Jersey taking in the specular scenery, the wildlife and the general splendor that is the Jersey coast. They have a passion for their home and their artisan product which shines through in every crunch of there unrefined taste of the ocean.
