Faced with the salt issue becoming so obvious that trees were dying from its incursion, local farmer and entrepreneur, John Ross along with industrial chemist Gavin Privett, joined forces to devise a system of extracting the ancient salt from the water table and give the land a fighting chance to reduce its salinity problem.
In 1991, the establishment of Pyramid Salt Pty. Ltd. to research and develop methods of land desalination through groundwater pumping and commercial solar salt production began in earnest. Primary salt production produced a standard product ideal for farming and swimming pools, yet the further the process went, the finer the salt became.
In turn, the salt they discovered from their system of pond evaporation process was second to none.
Pyramid Salt was born and the flakes of ancient crystals are testament to the purity that gives Pyramid Salt its wonderful flavour, a uniqueness that is adored by chefs who care.
You just have to try some to taste the difference.
