Is Cornish Sea Salt another Cornwall Cluster life-style company or has founder Tony Fraser raised outside capital? He certainly has two non-executive directors and has got off to good start with turnover in the first year, £250,000. Energy costs must be significant to boil off all the water unless they have established themselves next to a cold store, like the one owned by my cousin’s family, suppliers to the catering trade in Cornwall and South Devon -Doble Quality Foods, which generates excess heat.
Cornish Sea Salt has plans to expand and it is all about getting the price points right and the packaging to attract the customers. From the photos on the website, the packaging looks very good and would make fantastic presents. But there is no “shop” on the site.
I bought Welsh sea salt for a Christmas present last year and now I have find an outlet for Cornish Sea Salt near Cambridge.
