Gourmet sea salts and seasoning blends made by hand in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Handcrafted salt from Nova Scotia

We are a small, family-operated sea salt producer based in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, Canada.  We have been meticulously crafting our salt crystals since 2018, and sell our products at farmers’ markets, online, and at fine local retailers. 

Our gourmet cooking salts are a perfect taste of Nova Scotia’s natural landscape – crisp and electric, with a sweet finish. We recommend using our salts for finishing a dish, seasoning sauces, spicing up snacks, or for adding a little something special to baked goods. You can also use it in place of table salt at mealtimes.

Sea salt is made up of many wonderful natural minerals, including sodium chloride (also known as table salt). These minerals vary depending on where your salt comes from, as each shoreline has a different mineral composition. This is why every sea salt is different, and has a unique flavour profile!

We package our salt in reusable and recyclable glass containers. We also use biodegradable labels and cellulose packaging – it looks like plastic, but it easily composts! We are always looking for new ways to lessen our footprint and to use new technologies to offer a waste-free product.

About Us

South Shore Sea Salt is a mother & daughter small business located in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. In early 2018, Rebecca experimented with producing sea salt, and went on to sell her delicious salts at the local Farmers’ Market. By the end of that first sold-out season, it was clear this product was a hit! In 2019, she invited her mom Marsha to be a business partner, and South Shore Sea Salt was established as an independent small business.

In our purpose-built Saltcote, we produce our salts from April to November, using traditional, zero-waste methods that require a great deal of time and care. In June 2020, we were thrilled to launch our Online Store, enabling us to ship our products across Canada and the USA. Our loyal customers can now stock up on sea salts year round, and even order salty gifts to be delivered directly to family and friends. 

We are very proud of the environmentally friendly choices we’ve made for our product packaging. We’ve chosen reusable (and very cute) glass jars for our salts, and we package our gift sets in biodegradable cellulose instead of plastic. 

We absolutely love where we live, here on Canada’s beautiful East Coast. If you’ve visited Nova Scotia, you know that it’s a special place. We feel very lucky to live here, and we love working together at South Shore Sea Salt.
