After the evaporation of sea water by the action of the sun and the wind, the sea salt condenses and crystallizes on the surface of the crystallizer, where by a controlled harvesting process, the sea salt is cut and gathered ready to be transported to the mountain known as Gravera. Afterwards, the salt will undergo a series of processes such as washing, spinning, grinding, drying, sieving, etc. to be finally packaged in different presentation packaging ready for its multiple uses and applications.
