Where does White Salt come from?

White Salt is a de-icing salt product imported in huge bulk ships from around the world. It is ia marine salt made by repeating the process of flooding huge salt pans or salt beds with seas water and allowing the sun rays to evaporate the water leaving a crystallised salt deposit behind. The salt deposit increases as the process is repeated and when a large enough deposit has built up, it is harvested, graded and treated with an anti-caking agent to prevent the salt forming large lumps, this ensures the salt is suitable for us in grit spreaders. As noted above, Rock Salt Shop is one of the leading suppliers for White De-Icing Salt and we encourage you to get in touch with us if you have any questions and or you prefer to order via the phone!
