WHO ARE YOU ? We often get asked who we are, what we do & why salts? well...
We are Sally & Emma or as we are better known Sal & Em. Partners in business, life & love.
Sal has over 30 (!!) years experience retail management & is currently a commercial real estate agent in Sale. Lover of animals great & small, travelling & being an Aunty to a tribe of nieces & nephews. Sal does majority of our deliveries & can assure all salts are enthusiastically sung to with 80's classics.
Em is a born & bred Sale girl ! Working in many local hospo venues over the years as a barista, restaurant manager & chef. Currently the Executive Chef of The Criterion Hotel, Sale @crihotelsale "Winner of the 2021 AHA Victorian Regional Hotel of The Year". You may already follow her on instagram @the_unqualifiedchef. Lover of gin, gardening, doggos & art.
Cooking with salt, using brines, cures & confit salts is something Em's done for years, as well as making flavoured salts. The cocktail salts come from a love of Margarita's & sunshine.
When covid hit & we were forced into lockdown after lockdown, we decided to take this passion & turn it into a side hustle. With our first orders going out in early September 2021 we have been amazed & humbled with how our little company has taken off. We now have over 15 stockist & work with many more amazing companies. Not to mention being able to support other local businesses & buy off them.
We use as much local produce as we can from the beautiful Gunaikurnai Country we live on & are proud to show off Gippsland.
All in all we are just a couple of 'salt shakers', doing what we love, E & S.
