Dorset Sea Salt
Founded in 2017, the Dorset Sea Salt Company is helmed by Jethro, an obsessed sea salt fanatic. After reading about the historic and cultural relevance of salt production in Dorset, and visiting the natural salt pans on the east weares of Portland, Jethro pondered how and why this local industry had vanished. This idea affected him so immensely that he began to conceptualize, and envisage the revival of Dorset’s local Sea Salt scene.
With mentorship, and a small loan from the Prince’s Trust (a charity that helps young people get into work) Jethro founded the Dorset Sea Salt Company.
The Dorset Sea Salt Company aims to fill this void in local industry by marrying both ancient and new production methods. The aim is to preserve the traditional methods of the industry, but at the same time shroud it in an ethical, and ecological ethos. The result of this concoction is exceptional sea salt. Every small batch harvested is part of the wider mission grounded in craftsmanship, locality, and quality.
