About Gathering Place Trading Ltd:We are a family business founded in 2003 on Cortes Island, BC. We started small and stayed that way for many years as we home schooled our three children and established our homestead on the island. 17 years later, our packaging facility and warehouse are located in downtown Campbell River on beautiful Vancouver Island. We are a dynamic team of 8 employees including owners Lovena and Ryan. We specialize in organic spices and Canadian grown organic herbs, artisan sea salts, teas and dried fruit. One of our main company pillars is sourcing our products farmer direct. We visit the farms we source from, ensure their fair-trade nature and hand select these partners based on the benefit they provide to their local communities and to the sustainability of the planet. We give back 1% of our gross profit to grassroots projects benefiting women and children. Another of our company pillars is to source Canadian whenever possible, if a product grows in Canada, we will source it here. Our Canadian line consists of 14 organic culinary herbs and spices, two of which grow on our small farm on Cortes Island. The inspiration in starting our company was to be able to support small scale farmers in developing countries and give back to projects that were under-funded. Also, we desired to understand and shrink the global food economy to best nourish our family and our customers families. By ‘knowing the farmers’ who grow what we sell, we guarantee the freshest, highest quality ingredients that will enliven our customers culinary experience.
