15th August: Alison and David Lee-Wilson

This week Elliot Moss is joined by the husband and wife team behind premium sea salt supplier Halen Mon- Alison and David Lee-Wilson. 

After graduating from Bangor University, where they had fallen in love with each other and the island of Anglesey, they started looking for ways that would allow them to continue to live and work in this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Today, their sea salt is enjoyed around the world by chefs, food lovers and even the odd US president. It has been served at the London 2012 Olympics, political summits and royal weddings and is a vital ingredient in Green & Blacks chocolate and Piper’s Crisps.

Along with over 100 of the nation’s best delicatessens in the UK, we also supply Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Harvey Nichols. Our sea salt can be found in more than 22 countries across the globe as well as on the tables of some of the world’s top restaurants like The Fat Duck.
