A taste of Australian excellence

The SunSalt journey began in 1983 when founders Duncan and Jan set out on a culinary adventure driven by passion and dedication. They started their salty adventure by extracting salt from saline subterranean water in Hattah, Northwest Victoria. Then, in 2000, they founded Murray River Salt® by utilising their proficiency in removing value-added salts from inland brine. Murray River Salt grew from these humble beginnings to become the only naturally occurring pink salt producer in Australia.
