Production of Salt Essential to UK's COVID-19 Response

Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, British Salt is committed to maintaining production of our salt in the short, medium and long term in order to continue to supply our UK and global manufacturing customers. 

At the same time, we are taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of our people and those in the supply chains in which we operate.  Our production operations fall within the government identified critical sectors and will remain operational whilst following guidance to limit the spread of COVID-19 as far as is practicable.

British Salt is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of pure dried vacuum salt.  This is a vital ingredient not only used in food manufacturing but also in essential industrial processes and water treatment. 

We are part of a critical national supply chain that helps keep the people fed, healthy and supporting essential industrial processes.  As such, there are suppliers of products and services upon which we rely, which if disrupted, could impair our ability to perform our essential operations. We therefore ask any of our suppliers who are concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their operations to make contact with your British Salt representative.
