BIO SEA SALT
Gift of the Adriatic Sea, Sun and Wind
Salt is uniquely timeless – it exists since the water and the stone and it will continue to exist long after us. Historically speaking, salt accompanies human development since time immemorial.
The natural salt Nin, from region Dalmatia in Croatia is a gift of Adriatic Sea, sun, and the wind from the slopes of mountain Velebit. Salt has been produced with love, traditionally and in coexistence with nature for 1,500 years.
At the Nin Saltworks the machines do not produce the salt. The man does not produce it either. The salt is produced by the sun, sea and wind. Bio Sea Salt Nin is ecological, harvested by human hands, completely natural and biodynamic. It is suitable for everyday use both nutritionally and medicinally.
Products of the Nin Saltworks are handmade, created with love, they are diverse and dynamic, they have firm character, they are delicious, specific, relaxing, and healing.
Nin salt is proud of being presented the BIO-sign in December 2015. Thus the Nin Saltworks have become the only salt works on the Adriatic coast to receive this environmental certificate. The environmental certification project was co-financed by the EU through the European Regional Development Fund and the Croatian Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Crafts. The investment amounted to 1.4 million HKD.
The project entitled The Flower of Salt and business – the organic production of consumable and therapeutic salt, confirms that Nin salt is produced organically. It also confirms that Solana Nin has been using traditional methods, which are also environmentally friendly, for generations.
