About us

I founded the Himalayan Salt Company in 1998 for the purpose of bringing the world’s purest salt to the United States. Our unique and guiding principle is to maintain the purity of the salt we extract from the beneath the Himalayas from the mining phase, throughout its preparation and packaging into commercial products. The product is mined in the Punjab District of India/ Pakistan using only hand tools and nothing is ever added to nor removed from the product- it is truly a clean, unprocessed, natural “whole food.”

For other Himalayan Salt products, including salt crystal lamps, the company deals directly with craftsmen in India and Pakistan in small workshops centered in villages where creating Himalayan salts products is a major part of the economic support for the village. In addition to providing support to local craftsmen, this exclusive relationship allows us to guarantee superior and consistent workmanship and the highest quality materials at very competitive prices.

Many companies offer Himalayan salt products but only with products from the Himalayan Salt Company in Shrewsbury, MA, can you be assured that they are perfectly pristine, all natural and pure.

We’ve grown from the early days of exporting pure white and pink salts for cooking, into a marketer of white, pink and black salts, bath salt products and hundreds of varieties of salt lamps fashioned by hand from pure salt crystals.

The Himalayan Salt Company is one of the oldest and best established Himalayan salt product importers in the US today, supplying salt products to retail outlets in 34 states from 3 distribution warehouses across the country. Our company organizers pallet size loads of salt products as well as the direct import of partial or full container loads of salt products delivered directly to our clients’ warehouses either as single loads or as a series of scheduled, partial deliveries over months. We also provide drop shipment services for individual lamps for large and small retailers and online marketing outlets. We guarantee our products whether you purchase a single item or a container load and we pride ourselves on custom development and, frequently, personal delivery of hundreds of Himalayan Salt products per year.

Our competitive prices reflect the large volumes of Himalayan Salt that we import to the US.
I encourage you to contact us with any questions or special requests and to enjoy all of the products we offer.
