THAT RESPECTS OUR ENVIRONMENT
We are Gilles Morel, Matthieu Le Chantoux, Alexandre Moret and Hugues Martineau and we own and manage an independent family business harvesting and preparing Guerande Sea Salts.
Our salt marshes are situated in the world famous Guérande basin,(close to the city of Nantes) more specifically in the beautiful Mès basin near Asserac.This is where we manually and naturally harness nature’s energies to produce Sea Salt ( Sel Gris Marin : Coarse Sea Salt and Fleur de Sel literraly “Flower of Salt”).
Coarse Sea Salt and Flower of Salt are completely natural, delicate products created with a unique combination of ancestral knowhow and natural elements; the wind, the sun and the ocean during the summer season. Pure and natural. Our Salts are all harvested manually, retaining many essential natural trace elements.
We pride ourselves in harvesting our Salt following the traditions of the French Terroir Guérandais and the methods of our ancestors. This protects the subtle taste, aspects of the Coarse Sea Salt and the Flower of Salt. Our Salts are produced and harvested in accordance with the rigorous standards of the Indication Géographique Protégé IGP label ( Also know as the Protected Geographical Indication; which is an Official Sign of Quality and of European Origin.)
This fully guarantees the quality and the origin of our sea salt.
We use an ancestral method to Harvest our salts in the Mes Bassin, For Generations the Fleur de Sel and Sel de Guerande have been harvested during the summer.
With our harvesting methods and our commitments, we actively participate in preserving our ecosystem.
We actively participate in our community with a strong partnership with the ESAT from Leniphen who have been with us since the beginning.
thanks to a delicate and careful harvest we offer our best Sea salt and Fleur de Sel for your discovery.
