Background

Until recently sea salt was considered a basic commodity—sea salt was just salt!

Now however, gourmet chefs, in homes and in restaurants, have learned to appreciate and distinguish between the distinctive qualities of the many varieties of gourmet salts and the ways these salts enhance the flavors and finish of foods.

This premium Bali Fleur de Sel product is our first flagship product to be launched into the market.

Manna Indonesia selects its salt from leading salt producer area in the most exclusive salt harvest areas of Tedjakula on the north coast of Bali.

The dry sunny weather, rich latero -volcanic soil are ideal conditions for salt harvest in Bali as well as being a fruitful crop alternative for the salt farmers of this region.

Manna Fleur De Sel (Bali, Tedjakula Salt)

Tedjakula salt farmers, were once poor salt farmers in the remote village of Tejakula, 25 kilometers east of Singaraja, the capital of Buleleng regency. Salt farmers in the village could only afford to send their children to elementary schools. Very few children in the village could have the advantage of a junior high school education.

About 100 farmers in Tejakula have been producing sea-salt using techniques going back hundreds of years. Tejakula sea-salt is famous for the high-quality crystals and high mineral content.

The laboratory test, conducted in 2005, revealed that Tejakula sea-salt was among the highest quality in Indonesia, containing minerals including calcium.

Despite the time and energy-consuming work, Tejakula salt farmers remained poor and helpless until new hope was brought in.

Manna Indonesia joined hands to sell the sea-salt produced from Tejakula village directly to domestic & Export market. One of company’s objectives is to improve the living conditions of local sea-salt farmers.
