In the beginning......

Chico Salt Company was born of my love for everything food.  In general the majority of things we cook need salt, as does the fresh vine ripened tomato that you just plucked from the garden. Salt plays a crucial role in maintaining human health. It is the main source of sodium and chloride ions in the human diet. Sodium is essential for nerve and muscle function and is involved in the regulation of fluids in the body.  

I am a true believer in sourcing as much as I can locally.  While my sea salt isn't local, since we are in the north valley of California, a great majority of the ingredients used to infuse these salts is organic produce from local farmers in California. Even our spices are fresh.

I believe that salt enhances the flavor of everything, including that tomato....
