Eric Pateman Companies
In every venture he takes on, Eric celebrates local and sustainable cuisine in Canada and beyond. With their commitment to the highest quality of products and deliverables, the companies he manages are no exception.
Sea To Sky Seasonings
Developed by Eric in his capacity as one of the world’s leading chefs and culinary trend specialists, Sea to Sky Seasonings’ Amola Salts showcase his favourite flavours, and are a table-top necessity for any serious cook!
This delicious range of all-natural infused salts celebrates and enhances cuisines from around the globe, and takes every dish up a notch: think hickory-smoked bacon salt to rim the glass of your Caesar, garlic and rosemary salt to finish your homemade focaccia, truffle-infused salt to sprinkle on your movie night popcorn…
Every batch is crafted with the best quality ingredients — locally grown, ethical and organic wherever possible — and no food colourings, flavour enhancers or preservatives.
