Kona Sea Salt on the big island of Hawaii explains the making of their Hawaiian sea salt:
Kona Sea SaltTM is entirely hand tended, from the moment our deep seawater arrives on-site, until your order of this unique, gourmet sea salt is delivered to your door step.
The salt is hand-harvested after our unique deep seawater naturally evaporates, in about three weeks. Unhurried evaporation within our closed drying system under the bright Hawaiian sun provides ideal conditions for the characteristic, pure white Kona Sea SaltTM crystals to form. They are gently scooped into buckets, and wheeled to covered wooden hoppers; here, any remaining moisture drains from the salt. This liquid is a concentrated brine called nigari*, or bitterns, and we collect it at this time.
Our salt is hand-cleaned with forceps and patience to exacting standards, then packed into 10kg bags for wholesale.
Kona Sea SaltTM destined for our retail product line is oven-dried on site in accordance with State of Hawaii health requirements, then hand-packaged, hand-labeled, and readied for shipping. Whether it’s a single grinder, or full pallets shipped by sea, we make certain every order of Kona Sea SaltTM arrives as quickly and affordably as possible from our Kona production site.
Why do we produce our salt entirely by hand? Sustainability is important to Mera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. By subscribing to the principle of ‘hand-made’ quality, our company also ensures employment for its dedicated staff.
