Sea Salt In Norway

Salt is in our history

Many people around the world know of Norway through our seafood. Dating back to the Middle Ages we have exported cod from the bountiful Norwegian Sea in large volumes. To preserve the fish for transport on ships it was dried and salted. Much found its way to Portugal, Spain, France and Italy where Norwegian cod is a staple in many traditional dishes. As salt was cheaper to produce in the southern climates our ships started to bring salt home and the Norwegian sea salt production slowly disappeared by the start of the last century. Now with the abundance of clean hydro energy North Sea Salt Works is revitalizing the sea salt production from the crispy cold and clean north seas. It has a distinct bright flavor that we hope you will enjoy.
