All proceeds from the sale of our Spice Blend are donated to the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine to give hope and a future for all affected by those disorders, including Sebastien.

The mission of Chef Jean-Christophe is also a very personal one; his son Sebastien was diagnosed in 2004 with a Mitochondrial Disease. Those diseases have no cure and affect 1 out of 4000 children. The proceeds from the sales of Provencal Meat and Poultry Rub are entirely donated to the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine to help find new treatments and save the lives of hundreds of children, including Sebastien’s. As of today, we have raised in excess of $220,000 for research.

This mission has become our main focus and we will stop at nothing to see this endeavor come to fruition.

In the past 5 years, Mitochondrial malfunction has been positively linked to other serious conditions such as Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Muscular Dystrophy and certain types of Diabetes.
