Lots happening this year and we will share it all very soon :-)
Research Publications in leading medical journals and a new research programme about to kick off and then Covid hits. But we have managed to battle through this and have to look forward to some really exciting times ahead.
Global leading Water company launch - Global Burns and Skincare launch - Huge growth in our Sea Salt - Please stay tuned or get in touch :-)
2019 was a great year as we were now working with a number of skincare and cosmetics companies using our Sea Salt and our Minerals such as GOSH Cosmetics Denmark, Neals Yard London and Pestle & Mortar in Ireland. We completed our second innovation partnership with DCU and witnessed the sales of our supplements online grow and grow into a range of uses inspired by our clients.
Our sister Sea Salt company began to work on a new Guinness Smoked Sea Salt and a Roe & Co Whiskey Smoked Sea Salt for Diageo. We also began supplying our Sea Salt to many more Bakeries like Roundstone, Basta, Sceal and to chocolate and snack food companies. We also witnessed the launch of Dunnes Stores Simply Better Clogherhead Sea Salt crisps and Glens of Antrim Whiskey Smoked Sea Salt crisps.
Through 2018 we continued to develop our supplements and to focus on our Research & Cevelopment programme with DCU.
We began to work closely with our food and beverage manufacturers and with companies like Coca Cola, Schweppes, Prestige, East Coast Bakehouse, and many bakereries. We received Blas na hEireann awards and Great Taste awards. We also began working with many of our colleges including DIT:
Darren Harris, DIT National Bakery College “We found it to be very good, I was able to reduce salt down by 25% on average without difficulties in processing. I found it to be of good flavor and it had a clean taste. That said we really liked the breads that had a high level of your sea salt also!”
