Kreglinger Specialties to distribute Salt of the Earth's Mediterranean Umami in Western Europe


Salt of the Earth has appointed Kreglinger Specialties as its exclusive distributor for Mediterranean Umami, an all-natural sodium-reduction ingredient.

Kreglinger will be responsible for distribution in the UK, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg and France.

Mediterranean Umami is a sodium-reduction solution that offers umami flavour to foods.

As Mediterranean Umami consists of vegetable extracts and sea salt, it is claimed to be an all-natural, clean-label ingredient.

"Kreglinger is able to offer its customers a complete package of highly relevant solutions for creating tastier and healthier foods."

Salt of the Earth CEO Dovik Tal said: "The combination of their talented sales team and strong technical support, along with a focus on natural, clean-label and healthy ingredients, is a good fit for Salt of the Earth. Also, Western Europe presents a great opportunity as companies respond to regulatory trends for reduced sodium."

Kreglinger Specialties CEO Wim Arnouts said: "Mediterranean Umami is a great addition to our product portfolio, and we are excited to work with this new ingredient.

"It complements our existing solutions for fat reduction and sugar reduction. With this added salt-reduction ingredient and its natural flavour enhancement properties, Kreglinger is able to offer its customers a complete package of highly relevant solutions for creating tastier and healthier foods."

The UK Food Standards Authority (FSA) has issued new guidelines for salt/sodium levels, which is applicable on 76 food categories.

On average, UK adults consume between 8.1g and 8.8g of salt a day, while the maximum daily intake should be 6g.

Salt of the Earth has been producing sustainable sea salt solutions since 1922. It has customers in more than 30 countries.
