Our salt pans are situated just north of Swakopmund, on the strikingly beautiful Atlantic coast of Namibia. This area is registered as a nature reserve and bird sanctuary and has become a popular habitat for thousands of flamingos, cormorants, sea gulls, damara terns and even pelicans.
Our salt pans have a production capacity of approximately 120 000 tons of salt per year, and we can load up to 400 tons of salt per day.
At Salt Company, we value quality above all else, and for this reason our salt undergoes regular quality tests from independent laboratories in both Namibia and South Africa. Only the absolute best will carry our name. We are proud to supply companies across Africa with our quality products, including leading businesses in various African countries like Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa. While these are the main markets that we currently supply, we do occasionally supply salt to other African countries.
After the salt crop reaches the appropriate thickness, the salt is harvested with mobile equipment, washed, and placed on a stockpile to drain. The principal impurities are solar salt which are small amounts of calcium and magnesium sulphate, and magnesium chloride. Clean brine is used to wash the salt, removing the small amounts of these impurities, resulting in salt of the highest quality.
Our salt is iodated (also referred to as iodised) to each client’s unique specifications, and in accordance with the UNICEF regulations. Read more about the importance of iodated salt here.
