David Miles and Matthew Taylor create Jersey Sea Salt and are the most southerly solar salt producers in the British Isles. A small-scale artisan business, staying local means they can produce their sea salt in an environmentally friendly fashion, using low energy and low waste processes to turn local waters into pure salt crystals.
David has lived in Jersey for 25 years and initially came to the Island to play rugby. David worked in the finance industry for over 18 years and specialised in commercial real estate, however, David’s longing to create a different environment in which to live and work was to strong a calling to ignore.
Matthew is Jersey born and was also a keen rugby player. Matthew studied fine art in London, moved back to Jersey after graduating and started an interior design and building company. Whilst Matthew was happy with his job he also longed for a new challenge and something unique.
