Master salt makers since 1882


These days it is rare to find a family-owned business that‘s still genuinely family-run. But not at the Maldon Salt Company. Today, the company is in the hands of Steve Osborne, who follows in the footsteps of his father Clive, grandfather Cyril and great-grandfather James. Four generations of master salt makers have been hand-harvesting gourmet salt flakes in Essex with the same traditional artisan methods since 1882.

Maldon salt is a prestigious and unique product known for its flavour and quality and sought after by the health-conscious and gourmets alike. Take a generous pinch and crush between fingers and thumb. A perfect, flavour-enhancing addition or finishing touch to any meal.

Master salt makers 

"Salt makers born and bred, we’ve been hand-harvesting our world famous sea salt flakes from the coastal town of Maldon since 1882. These twisting shorelines of England have been alive with salt making for a thousand years. Working with the East of England Co-op has enabled us to supply local customers across our region".
