HAURAKI SEA SALT

Sustinere Suppliers

Words by : Ozone Fam

As a trained Landscape Gardener, Greg Beattie has always found inspiration in nature. In 2017, Greg started out on his quest to develop and produce a high quality and sustainable sea salt and now, Hauraki Salt Company is one of New Zealand’s first commercial artisan salt makers. Hand harvested with buckets of salt water from Maraetai Beach at the eastern-most point of Auckland, and produced in small batches - Hauraki Sea Salt is totally pure, natural and packed full of healthy minerals and trace elements.

After many failed attempts to find the right level of quality and viability in the production process, Greg needed to ‘think outside the box’, to innovate in order to achieve what he set out to do. So he engineered, designed and custom-made specific artisan salt making equipment in order to develop his own production process, utilising electricity and vacuum pressure to essentially speed up the evaporation process.

Greg’s now found that sweet spot between time, energy and pressure in his harvesting and production processes. He’s most certainly delivered on his promise of a sustainable, premium and completely natural artisan sea salt, that simply tastes like the sea.
