The Meadow Wholesale Program
The Meadow is an international distributor of artisan salt, Himalayan salt blocks, and cocktail bitters. Salt and bitters are elemental. Salt is the single most effective flavor enhancer and the quickest, most potent, and even the most cost-effective way to make the most of every meal. Bitters are to drinks and cocktails what salt is to food. Just a few dashes unites flavors and brings depth and complexity to your cocktail or drink without overwhelming it.
Expertise: The Meadow is the leading salt expert in the world. Mark Bitterman wrote the book on salt. We back up everything we do with the total commitment of our staff to assure your complete satisfaction.
Quality: We only carry the highest quality products, made by artisans from around the world. Artisan salts are profoundly rooted in the diverse culinary traditions of the food you serve - the ultimate quality, local ingredient. Most are utterly unrefined, ranging from 3% to 33% trace minerals. They come from beautiful places and beautiful people. Kosher is an artificially refined chemical with mechanically processed crystals. Industrial sea salt is no better, refined to 99.8% pure sodium chloride and standardized for global chemical markets. Cheap salt is spun from the industrial maw, an abstraction, a chemical, NaCl. There is no love.
Selection: The Meadow has the largest, most carefully curated selection of artisan salts in the world. Choose from over 100 varieties. Colors range from diamond to ruby, from sapphire to onyx. Crystals range from flakes to pyramids, from microbits to chunks. We also have over 120 varieties of cocktail bitters and dozens of sizes and shapes of Himalayan salt blocks.
Support: We will work with you to find finishing salts that enhance your restaurant or store. The Meadow's staff is always available to help with any questions you have on product use. We do on-site training with your staff, dinners, and provide literature with all of our products.
If you are looking for one elegant sea salt for general use, or one crazy exotic gourmet salt for that spectacular new dish, or a fifty gourmet salts for a world-class gourmet salt menu--or maybe something in between, we have the solution.
We specialize in:
Cooking Salt - Throw away your Kosher and industrial salts! You put so much care and attention into every aspect of your restaurant, sourcing the best ingredients, perfecting cooking techniques, styling each plate. Why make your most powerful ally, your salt, a cheap, throw-away ingredient? Our Meadow Fleur de Sel has delicate crystals, luscious moisture, satisfying crunch, and a rich, balanced mineral taste. Unlike French fleur de sel, the Meadow Fleur de Sel is affordable as an all-around cooking salt.
Finishing Salt - Light up the flavor and beauty of your food with a finishing salt that celebrates your culinary style. We believe that salt is best used toward the end of food preparation. Sprinkling a dish with a few grains of super high quality finishing salt is the most cost-effective way to take your food to the next level. The cost is pennies, the impact is a revolution. And we have just the right type of salt for whatever you're making.
Himalayan Salt Blocks - A delicious and stunning way to prepare and present food. Serve sashimi or fruit on a pink salt block for a delicate flavor and stunning visual presentation. Heat a salt block to sear Wagyu beef, scallops, or duck breast. Salt blocks bring panache and a primal form of originality to your menu.
The Meadow carries over 30 shapes and sizes of Himalayan Salt blocks, from bowls to bricks to platters to cubes. With more than six years of experience working with professional chefs, we grade every salt block according to its use, saving you money and assuring you the best quality.
Cocktail Bitters - We offer one of the largest selections of cocktail bitters for bars and restaurants. All our bitters are available for tasting in our shops.
Our selection of packaged gourmet sea salt from over 25 countries and Himalayan salt blocks is the largest and highest quality on the market. We have small taster jars, large jars, salt starter sets, and more. Most important, we have the expertise and passion to help you make gourmet salt a compelling and satisfying part of your business. Our wholesale program is backed by extensive sales literature, product education, and sales training. Give your customers the products and service to shop, cook, and eat better, more flavorful food.
