Salt is considered as a mineral and therefore it cannot be certified from organic farming; but a recent European rule will allow sea salts to be so, by 2021.
In the meantime, a raw sea salt accredited by Nature & Progrès mixed with organic dehydrated spices and plants is organic-certifiable; this is the case of this range which found a distributor in the Belgium-Nederland-Luxemborg area (BENELUX); an ultra-dynamic market of nearly 30 million consumers who are keen on Bio.
Why the Ile de Ré?
By its geographical configuration, its eco-system and its mode of inland harvesting sea salts; this territory is naturally protected from the risks of both terrestrial and maritime pollution (oil spills). This is why it is recognized by the certification bodies as a salt that is fully compatible with the Organic reference system.
