About the Salt Association

Salt has been a part of British manufacturing for hundreds of years and we hope that this will be the case in years to come.

Salt manufacturers employ hundreds of people all over the UK so it’s important that we continue to support this industry to preserve jobs and to help support our economy.

Approximately 2-3 million tonnes of salt a year are produced by UK-based producers that supply a range of industries from food manufacturing to pharmaceuticals.

The Salt Association is the trade association set up to represent these manufacturers and are fast becoming the leading voice within the industry.

Members of the Association provide guidance, both social and political, as well as promote the objectives of the salt industry. These objectives are voiced to external organisations as well as the government, and act as advisers on key issues that affect the industry.

We believe that there is growing evidence to support salt as an essential part of everyday life, especially when it comes to our health, and we actively promote scientific research for a more balanced view.
