Murray River Salt flakes are essential by foodies and top chefs across Australia. The concentrated brine is pumped up from an ancient inland sea where the water travels through several canals before making its way to crystalliser ponds. The brine is evaporated by the sun and crystallises over the summer months where it is then harvested and transported to a nearby processing plant to be washed, dried and packaged.
