Who We Are

How It All Began

Hey its Kate & Scott. Here is our story --

We have been married for almost 12 years, we have a daughter, Jordin (12)who is the 3rd owner of Shumka Dust.

We moved out to Edmonton area in 2006 for work and school, we were out there for 10 years before deciding to move back home to Thunder Bay (always home)

We also have two fur babies; Memphis, our black lab is 14 and Detective Marty Deeks our French Bulldog who is 5.

Kate studied the Culinary Arts program at Con College and has worked in many kitchens, but decided that working in restaurants wasn’t for her, she enjoys working in our kitchen the best, cooking for friends and family. Scott also has worked in many restaurants and loves to be in the kitchen.

Always playing around in the kitchen, we started throwing different spices together (in Morinville, AB. 2014) when we came up with an amazing blend. We started putting it on ribs and chicken thighs for our bbq's with friends. They then started asking if they could have some to bring home. Which was then Shumka Dust was born.

Scott started taking Shumka Dust to work for his new co-workers to try, and all of a sudden everyone was asking to buy some. We sold over 100 bottles in 1 week. So we sat down and thought if people are this interested we should go ahead and get it out to the public. We got our city license and had the health & fire unit come and check out our kitchen. We passed with flying colours (A). So next step was to make labels and start advertising. Its been a whirl wind, but we are so extremely happy with the interest, so much so we introduced Superior Steak Spice only a few months later & then Moonlite Bay Dredge in Spring of 2018.

Shumka Dust is now available in over 25 local shops across Thunder Bay. We also ship, shipments have been sent to the West coast all the way to PEI.

Dust a Little or Dust Alot

Shumka Dust products are not full of fillers like some of your typical spices in your spice cupboard, and best part is its local to Thunder Bay. We are always working in the kitchen and playing with new ideas to expand our spice line, and even some fresh products.
