PURE AND NATURAL

Launched in 2017, Hauraki Salt Company produces New Zealand’s first commercially available artisan sea salt. Our water source is the beautiful Hauraki Gulf, a coastal feature of the North Island of New Zealand.

Made in small batches and hand harvested, Hauraki Flake Sea Salt is a product of craftsmanship and passion for company owner Greg Beattie. With a background in landscape gardening and a love of nature - Greg has created a fully customized process that produces sea salt the way Mother Nature intended. Pure and natural.



PROCESS

Our independently audited salt making process evaporates sea water utilizing the sweet spot between pressure, heat and time. Getting all these factors in the right balance is a craft learnt over two years of development. The result is a premium quality salt that is on par with the best sea salts from around the world. Our process is sustainable and uses power from the grid. We don’t burn any fossil fuels in the making of our salt. From bucketing out the water to hand harvesting from our salt pan. Hand packaging and labeling. Our product is a labor of love.

A KEY INGREDIENT

The key to any good meal is the use of quality ingredients. A good quality sea salt can add that little bit of special to your dish making for a more delicious meal. Our large flakes taste like the sea and have a beautiful melt in your mouth smooth finish. No bitter after taste like some other salts. We designed it that way for your enjoyment. One taste will leave you wanting more. Great on sea food, steak, eggs, roasted vegetables, salads and more. We supply home cooks to fine dining chefs, retailers and food manufactures too.
