The Olsson Family have been making solar sea salt since the 1950's and is the oldest family owned and operated sea salt maker in Australia.
To make its sea salt, Olsson's use the method called "solar evaporation". Solar salt is produced by the action of sun and wind on seawater in large ponds. The seawater evaporates in successive ponds until the seawater is fully concentrated and the salt then crystallises on the floor of the pond. It is then scooped up, washed in seawater, dried and packaged. That's it. The sea salt is from two of the most pristine bodies of water found in Australia, Port Alma in Qld and Whyalla in SA.
