The Maldon Crystal Salt Company is now one of only four manufacturers producing salt in England. It's still a small family run business and its for this very reason its success continues to grow from strength to strength. Rather than competing on cost and quantity, Maldon Salt is superior in quality and as a result has made its mark as a prestige product. Because Maldon Salt is still hand harvested in the traditional manner, there will always be a limit to the amount that can be produced. Its soft white flaky crystals are completely natural, without artificial additives, giving Maldon Sea Salt a distinctive texture and salty flavor, which means less, is required. Free from the bitter after-taste often associated with other salts, its characteristic clean fresh taste enhances the flavor of all natural and fine foods.
