Due to the ongoing La Nina weather pattern and resulting above average rainfall, Pink Lake (Dimboola, where we source our salt from), is holding too much water to conduct our regular salt harvests. This means that we now have a shortage of our 5kg salts. We are hoping that the lake will dry out again in January so that we can resume harvesting and bulk salt supplies in early 2023.

Our gourmet salt is a natural pink salt sourced just 50km up the road from the Mount Zero olive grove.

The lake is fed by natural salt aquifers and each summer dries out to reveal a bed of salmon-coloured pink salt. Mount Zero and the lake's traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council have been working together to hand-harvest a small amount of salt from the lake each year.

Through analysis of the salt we know that it is a concentrated store of natural mineral nutrients - rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc and copper as well as being rich in beta carotene. This complexity of minerals, provides a complex, well-rounded flavour - dissimilar to many sharp-tasting refined salts.

Mount Zero Pink Lake Salt is a natural gourmet salt product which varies in pigment from wet to dry. The local provenance of the salt, along with the hand harvesting, natural sun drying and the salts beautiful flavour and colour are a mirror of Mount Zero's core principles of regionalism, sustainability and quality.

We recommend the Coarse salt for use in grinders and the Fine and Medium salts as a pinch-and-season option.
