Powerful Flavours from a Rugged Coastline
Our family-owned business produces premium sea salt in Hubbards, Nova Scotia, Canada. We have been meticulously crafting our salt crystals from the waters of St. Margaret's Bay since 2018.
Sea salt is made up of many complex and delicious natural minerals, including sodium chloride (which you might know 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!
Our gourmet cooking salts are the perfect taste of Nova Scotia’s natural landscape – crisp and electric, with an almost sweet finish. We recommend 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.

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.
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.

I received a gift of your various flavoured sea salts and loved them!! ... I want to make bread for my son in law who is from Halifax and think he would love it if he knew it was your salt in the recipe!

My family knows how much I love to BBQ, so they got me your "Grill Master Gift Box" for Father's Day, this past weekend. What a fantastic collection of salt varieties and other BBQ essentials. We've already used the Garlic Sea Salt on some grilled vegetables and looking forward to whipping up a beer can chicken or two this weekend on the grill with the BBQ Spice Rub.
