Their mini Travel Salt and Pepper shakers are popular and occupy an important niche in

their range; nevertheless, it troubled the Oryx Desert Salt team that these were made of

The new biodegradable paper-tube packaging is in line with Oryx Desert Salt’s

#RefillNotLandfill philosophy; they sell smart refill boxes alongside their reusable glass

Oryx Desert Salt is a well-established South African brand, known for producing natural,

pollution-free salt sourced from the pristine Kalahari Desert. Deep within the desert, lies a

remote saltpan where crystal salt is harvested from underground streams running through

ancient Dwyka rock formations tested to be 280-300 million years old, and then sun-dried

under the hot Kalahari sun. The result is a 100% pure, naturally organic, nutritious salt.

Oryx Desert Salt is sustainable, coming from an ever-renewable and self-replenishing

source in the Kalahari. Refillable, stylish, glass bottles with long-lasting ceramic grinder

heads (so no plastic particles are ground into food!) encourage customers to refill their

grinders over and over by buying value-for-money refill boxes.
