The Halen Môn story...
Halen Môn began with a saucepan of seawater on the Aga in our family kitchen. As the water boiled away and the salt crystals started to form, we knew we'd struck culinary gold.
Fifteen years ago we started by supplying Halen Môn Sea Salt to Swain’s, our local butchers in Menai Bridge on the Isle of Anglesey. From the very beginning we wanted to be a quality oriented business and it's a commitment that has paid off.
Today our sea salt is enjoyed around the world by chefs, food lovers and even the odd US president.
In the UK we supply Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Harvey Nichols, along with over 100 of the nation’s best delicatessens. Our salt can also be found in more than 22 countries and some of the world's top restaurants. Not bad for a family business from North Wales.
We believe that Halen Môn is vital ingredient in any food lover’s life. It's a truly unique product, made using craft, care and the best that the natural environment has to offer.
Mae halen yn anghenraid sylfaenol i fywyd. Credwn fod Halen Môn yn anghenraid sylfaenol i fywyd unrhyw un sy’n caru bwyd. Mae ein cymysgedd unigryw o deulu, awyrgylch, crefft a thechnoleg wedi profi i fod yn eithriadol o lwyddiannus ar bob lefel o’r cynhyrchiad i’r mwynhad.
