Who we are
Conny Classen and Robert Steinbach together bring over 40 years experience in the hospitality sector to bear on the re-energized Salt Spring Sea Salt Ltd. Known as chefs, caterers, food lovers and wine enthusiasts, Robert and Conny bring their business acumen to the salt business at a time when demand for these high quality, hand-crafted locally sourced products is growing quickly.
The founders of Salt Spring Sea Salt were Philippe Maril and his wife Carolyn. It was Philippe’s French upbringing and the influence of his late grandmother’s culinary prowess that inspired him to begin making Fleur de Sel – the finest finishing salt – here in Canada. Since 2014, the company has been making salt products starting with the waters of the Salish Sea. Philippe passed away in 2022.
"The chocolate Fleur de sel is exceptional. From the deep chocolate flavour, colour and the pieces of cacao nibs this salt is the perfect finishing touch to any chocolate dessert. Used to finish my signature Marilena Chocolate Bar, it accentuates and complements all the flavours in the dish. Making it the perfect finishing touch!"
- Dominique Laurencelle, Pastry Chef at Marilena Cafe & Raw Bar
