Salt in all its forms is a hot culinary trend. 
It enhances any savory dish and makes the taste buds sing.

Halmstad’s Falksalt is a small family owned company in Halmstad founded in 1830, and is now the dominant salt brand in Sweden. Both professionals and consumers prefer their brand because their focus is on salt and salt only. Being a small family owned company they put their heart into meeting customers' requests, no matter where they're from.
