Cornish Sea Salt, part of Provenance Brands, has won
the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, after a growth of 552 % in exports of its natural, mineral-rich sea salt.
In 2012, the company began to develop an international market and appetite for its hand- harvested sea salt, and the total number of export countries has now reached 33.
Mark Sullivan, Chairman of Provenance Brands comments: “We’re absolutely delighted. Our growth is credited to working closely with distributors and the increasing desire to use a healthy salt. Cornish Sea Salt is well on course to being known as the best British sea salt internationally.”
Back in the UK, the company continues to expand both in terms of wholesale, which has seen a 30% increase on last year, and more recently
as an ingredient in food manufacturing.
