Maldon Salt received the Royal Warrant in 2012 during its 130th anniversary. The Royal Warrant is the award of royal court suppliers in England. This warrant is awarded to the purveyors who have been supplying the Royal Family for at least 5 years and stands for excellent service, excellence and very good quality.
The Maldon Salt has been produced for over 136 years by a small family business, the Maldon Crystal Salt Company in Essex England. This company is already in its fourth generation operated by the Osborne family. The company itself was founded in 1882 under the name The Maldon Salt Company. Today it is the only traditionally producing salt company in the region.
These salt flakes are made in a special process from seawater . First, the seawater is filtered and boiled to remove all impurities. When that happens, production begins. In a special process, the water is heated until it crystallizes. Sounds easy? But it is not, there is a lot of know how behind it. At the end, the salt is harvested by hand and packed.
