When I'm not busy in the spice room, you can find me at the Salt Spring Saturday Market (April to October) or out in the community supporting local organizations like the Salt Spring Island Conservancy, The Garden Club and the Chamber of Commerce… or kicking my own butt in a boot camp class at North End Fitness!
About Our Products:
Beginning in May 2015 we added an allergen label on all of our products as per CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) requirements. Many of our blends contain mustard (which is an allergen) and any blend may contain mustard since it goes through our grinder; blends with ginger may also contain sulfites. Our suppliers also handle peanuts, tree nuts, soy, milk, wheat and sesame in their facilities so this warning has also been added to our labels.
As of November 2015 we have added a date stamp on the back panel of our jars. This is the "Freshest Before" date which is two years after the date the blend was made. It will help you remember when to replace your spices for optimal freshness! Our new labels actually say Freshest Before/Meilleur Avant above the date; on older labels the date is stamped below the UPC scan code.
If you have additional questions about our products, or would like more information before placing your order give me a quick call or get in touch via our Contact Us page. I am happy to answer your questions.
