Monsoon Coast is a small (read one 'spice girl') company located on beautiful Salt Spring Island in British Columbia. We started over 15 years ago with a vision to make traditional Indian spice mixtures accessible to the western palate. Since then we have followed our taste buds to other parts of the planet. Our fans rave about the ability of our mixtures to transform an everyday meal into a taste sensation. This year we will continue to expand our following and get more stores to carry our products.

Update April 11, 2014
Taste of Salt Spring!
WOW! It was great to see so many people at the Salt Spring In The City Show in Vancouver.
The weekend was a lot of fun for everyone! We hope you are inspired to jump on a ferry or float plane and come and see Salt Spring for yourself sometime soon.
The Salt Spring Saturday Market started on April 5th and runs every Saturday, rain or shine, until the end of October.
There are lots of other great events on the horizon with Salt Spring Blooms in April - so check it out. You will find us at the Taste of Salt Spring on Sunday April 13th, 4-6pm at the Harbour House Hotel. Last year's sold-out food and wine tasting event was a lot of fun! Tickets are $17 in advance or $20 at the door.

If you are on Salt Spring look for us at NatureWorks, Country Grocer (Deli Section), Waterfront Gallery, SaltSpring Mercantile and Pharmasave (Uptown-while supplies last). Or contact me at 250-537-7535 or email andrea@monsooncoast.com to have something shipped.

I am still working at expanding the number of stores that carry Monsoon Coast spice mixtures. We are at nearly 50 locations across Canada. Let me know if you have a favourite gourmet food or grocery store near you that should carry our products.
