Wow it is the first time my website pass 10,000 visitor mark in a month, Thank-you guys
Here is the E-mail of the day Keep them coming they make me so happy.
My husband, a chef in the UKwww.falconbletsoe.co.ukis a big fan of your flavoured salts. I promised to get him many, many bags of various salts for Christmas but, when I went to get them at the Granville Island this past week while visiting my parents in Vancouver for the holidays, I couldn’t find you! I’m still in Vancouver for the remainder of this week, leaving the morning of Dec 31. Would it be possible to pick up a variety of salts at your production facility?
Of course Susan, I will be very happy to open the production facility for you.

We met at the farmer's market in Whistler in late August and you said that your White Truffle Balsamic would be the best vinegar I ever had, and it is! In fact, I've used up my bottle. Is it possible for you to ship me six bottles? It would be going to New Jersey, USA. Please let me know. Thanks, Yes I could mail it to you from Blaine by Friday Just look on my blogge under glass shipping, November post
Hello Jean-Pierre, After going to a craft fair @ croatian cultural centre and seeing sea to sky seasonsings, I stumbled onto your website to read what has happened to you with the edible bc. It made me quite upset reading this story. I had thought that their sea to sky seasonings was a unique product and was produced by an artisan who was fortunate enough to have Edible BC carry their producets. I had bought quite a lot, only to find out that even the name was taken from your company. I see that you will be at Granville Island from the 12th to the 18th. I am not sure if I would be able to drop by during the week day but had a question about the 17th. You will be at both the famers market and the Granville Island Public Market? I would prefer to go to Granville island as I will be in that area and wanted to know if you will be having similar product? Thank you,
Yes it is sad it is call a passage when a store make a spin off of a supplier best product The sad part in it there was a article in the Vancouver Sun this week:
Sea to Sky Seasonings started on his kitchen table in Squamish after Edible BC lost its specialty salt supplier. "We had been selling flavoured salts for a number of years when our supplier decided he didn't want to whole-sale any more," Pateman said. Edible BC has lost a number of producers who decided that the leap from cottage to commercial was too hard and packed it in.
Yes I was the specialty salt supplier it is funny as Mr. Pateman try to give itself a good conscience as we never stop whole sallying our products to him, he just stop ordering from us, they move lot of my products for 5 years and as Mr Pateman said they sale up to $10,000 a month of my Products. Mr Pateman is a business men with an MBA from England, I was is biggest supplier (with no love between each other I must say), he saw the value in my product
Now he produce a very similar product as my best seller for is store, he wholesale it in more then 100 stores and he try to get to the same Farmer market I do. Is this a bit convenient as an excuse to take the work of an Artisan especially when your claim to promote Local food artisan not to take there work from them?
MR Pateman said in the same article "Since July of last year we were buying from a local supplier who was bringing in salt from Portugal," he said. "Now we are buying it direct from Portugal 1,000 kilos at a time.
" Oh this sound so familiar "
PS. Maison Cote still produce 60 tone of seasoned sea salt a year, 5 tone of peppers and many spices to creating new edible every year to please your palate
I am so grateful that my customers are loyal. My products will continue to be available through the Farmer's Markets, Granville Island (as a day vendor), online and local craft shows where you have found me in the past. Well Seasoned carry part of my line Thank you for taking the time to notify me of your concerns.
