THE HISTORY AND PROCESS OF SES SALINES

Ses Salines Noves de Fornells were built in the XIX century, during the English rule. We started renewing it in 2012 so that the saltworks can be visited and to produce Flor de Fornells salts. Producing salt is a natural process during which the ponds’ sea water evaporates due to the effect of sun and wind.

The fleur de sel is the first layer that appears on the water surface. This salt has less sodium chloride because it is hand-harvested as soon as it crystallizes. Then it dries in the open air, under the effect of the wind and is prepared for consumption. It is not refined in anyway. That’s why we are proud to offer a natural and ecological product.
