Piran salt with the designation of origin, this precious product of the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park, is the result of restless winds, warm sun, and the hardworking salt pan workers. It is made manually, according to traditional methods dating back more than 700 years. The key process involves natural crystallisation in the Park’s salt fields that are protected by PETOLA – a valuable bio sediment substrate made up of minerals and microorganisms. The Piran salt with the designation of origin is light, rich in sea minerals, and has an exquisite taste, supplemented by the parent water caught within the crystals.

“Salt is the sea that could not return to the sky”. This is how the producers from Piran are describing the sea salt they produce. It is as beautiful as their product is! This is not just any sea salt, but a high quality and healthy product recognized by several world class and celebrity chefs. Here at Organach.ie, we are proud to introduce this incredible product to the Irish market.
The uniqueness of this product comes from its 700-year-old tradition of harvesting where the whole process is made by a beautiful collaboration between nature and hardworking man and women, where most of the work is done by hand and the use of machines is minimal. The process is certified by a Protected Designation of Origin (https://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/quality_en) since 2014, guaranteeing the high quality of the end product.
The basic process is natural crystallisation on salt-fields, where salt is collected on a bio-sediment base of a few millimeters thickness called PETOLA, composed of minerals and micro-organisms. The harvest only depends on the forces of nature – of the sun, wind, sea, and the assiduous work of the salt pan workers. The salt from the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park is light, rich in minerals of the sea, and of an exceptional taste that provides dishes with extra culinary exceptionalness.
