The edible salts industry | France

The main users of food salt are private individuals (table salt, kitchen salt) and the food industry (basic raw material). Times are hard for saliners with consumption down by 16% for over eight years (1). The health effects of excessive salt consumption have prompted governments to respond. Communication campaigns and the National Nutrition and Health Programme have changed habits.  

Nevertheless, there has been an improvement since 2009 linked to the return of the "homemade". The trend towards local and special salts made it possible to compensate for the decline in volume. Brands understood that salt could become a food appreciated by gastronomers. Whereas food salt has until now been very commonplace, there has been an increase in the value of the market and an increase in the number of new products. The La Baleine and Cérébos brands account for over 43% of sales (by volume). Both have recently modified their visual identity in order to better differentiate themselves from the private labels that are very present on the market. The main salt production companies are Les salines de Guérande, Salins du Midi, Esco France, Sodexma and Natursel de Guérande.
