The purity of Mediterranean artisanal salt

What marks the quality of gourmet salt is its artisanal collection, which is subjected to a natural washing process in the crystallizer itself with waters with concentrations higher than 25º Beaumé. 

The natural sun wealth and the saline purity of the Mediterranean sea are combined with the expert hands of salt workers to collect a salt rich in minerals and trace elements. Furthermore, the manual collection treatment provides an exquisite texture to the salt crystals that in a very special touch that enhances the flavors of any traditional or avant-garde dish.

The project MedArtSal aims to promote the sustainable development of the Artisanal Salinas, providing concrete support on economic, environmental and governance issues. Addressing common challenges in four Mediterranean regions (Italy, Spain, Lebanon and Tunisia), will promote the development of a sustainable and adaptable management model fostering the territorial valorization of artisanal salinas.

MedArtSal model will represent an innovative solution and will provide innovative sustainable actions for salinas, providing a sound operational support and specific guidance on the best development strategy compared to the features and needs of the area. The model is made up of the combination of good practices, commerce, biodiversity and ecosystem service preservation, as well as other services.

Mediterranean salinas

The Mediterranean coast has been exploited since time immemorial using techniques that have remained almost intact until the 1970s. The result has not only been an exclusive salt due to its high quality, but also a unique landscape rich in biodiversity. A lifestyle that has accompanied the Mediterranean people for more than 2000 years, clearly influencing their character, customs and, of course, gastronomy

There are several salinas behind the MedArtSal project, all of them recognized for their more traditional salt harvesting methods, as our most remote ancestors did. Specifically, 14 salt pans from Italy, Spain, Lebanon and Tunisia that, in addition to creating unique products, offer unique services at their facilities.
