About Us

SaltWorks® is America's Sea Salt Company®. Founded in 2001 and based near Seattle, in Woodinville, WA, we supply premium-grade specialty salts to salt enthusiasts around the world. From culinary, gourmet salts to therapeutic salts for the bath, our customers range from individuals who order by the jar, to manufacturers, restaurants, retail stores, and spice companies who order by the pallet, truckload, and ocean container.

The most trusted name in the salt business, for SaltWorks keeping our customers happy is always our top priority. We have been shipping orders to satisfied salt lovers around the world since 2001, and have earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, been awarded the Circle of Excellence Award from Bizrate two years running, and achieved a 5-star seller rating from Nextag – all due to our dedication to the best customer service and most exceptional products possible.

Since the beginning, SaltWorks has been built on our two core values: purity of product and customer experience. Our inherent pledge to delicious, innovative natural salt products and our belief in the highest quality possible have differentiated our salts from any other salts on the market since day one. SaltWorks unique selection of premium all-natural sea salts and mineral salts, both from around the world and made right here at our state-of-the-art facility, promises unrefined, chemical free, mineral rich varieties, conveniently delivered right to your doorstep.

We have created our superior selection of over 110 varieties of salts from around the world by sourcing sea salts and mineral salts from only premium locations, using well-respected and reputable suppliers who are FDA registered and ethically & ecologically approved. Once the salts arrive to SaltWorks facility, they are meticulously perfected using our exclusive quality processes. After an exacting initial screening, and since, depending on its natural environment, salt inherently contains traces of foreign materials like shells or sand, the salt then undergoes our Optically Clean® technology. Expertly developed by SaltWorks, this eliminates impurities and flawed crystals, while leaving the raw salt just as natural as the day it was harvested: no washing, no chemicals, and no tampering with Mother Nature’s components. This is the only technology of its kind in the natural salt industry.

Beyond our selection of authentic salts from around the globe, SaltWorks commitment to delicious, pure, natural salt extends further, to producing our own handcrafted lines of rich & savory, all-naturally infused and cold-smoked salt varieties.  The result of our continual quest for the best, most flavorful salts possible, SaltWorks exclusive Fusion® flavoring process & cold-smoking techniques were born. Whether smoked, infused or simply perfected in their pristine state, all of our artisanal salts began with our philosophy that pure, natural products simply taste and feel better: no additives, no artificial flavors, 100% natural, made with only the best ingredients available.

Family owned & operated, SaltWorks was established in 2001 when Mark Zoske, CEO, and Naomi Novotny, president, learned about the variety and benefits of authentic, unrefined specialty sea salt, and were quickly surprised by how difficult these quality salts were to find and purchase. With consumers becoming more aware of all-natural products and remedies, the couple was convinced that others must be concerned about what was in their saltshakers, too. To close this gap, they decided to start a website, SaltWorks, where they could sell these unique, mineral-rich salt varieties. Mark and Naomi reached out to suppliers worldwide to source the highest quality mineral salts and sea salts they could find. SaltWorks would become the first gourmet salt company in the US.

In the meantime, consumers’ demand for sea salt over refined table salt was gaining momentum. SaltWorks, which was operating out of the couple’s spare bedroom, was on the brink of major expansion. Between 2003 and 2005, the sales grew by 2,000 percent, and in 2015 SaltWorks has now been listed on the Inc 500/5000 list nine times in a row! Needless to say, SaltWorks outgrew the spare bedroom and quickly became the largest gourmet salt company in the world. We now have a team of over 70 highly trained & passionate people that love salt. SaltWorks has spent the last 15 years perfecting our craft and investing in creating the best salts in the world. We proudly stand behind our high quality products, and always make our customers our number one priority. No other salt company can do what SaltWorks can! SaltWorks was the first and remains the largest gourmet salt company in the world.
