Salinas de Añana is home to one of the oldest industries in the world: Salt, an essential element for the survival of the human species, has been produced here uninterruptedly for more than 7,000 years.
The Valle Salado Foundation was established in 2009. It is a non-profit organisation charged with securing the future of the site. One of its main goals is to produce salt using the thousand-year-old know-how of the local salt makers who employ traditional environment-friendly techniques. This goes to make one of the world’s finest salts used by Michelin starred chefs as testament to its exceptional quality and the special flavours of its unique trace elements.
