PacificFlake sea salt is made from seawater that is collected off the coast of Northern California in Humboldt County.

After the seawater is moved to the holding tanks, it is then filtered and pumped into stainless steel kettles where a majority of the water is evaporated off, this continues until the right salinity levels are met creating a perfect brine for the crystallization process.

The brine is pumped into several stainless steel crystallizing pans that were specifically made to harvest the highest grade classic finishing flake sea salt.   As salt crystals form over many hours on the surface they sink to the bottom where they are raked, drained, and dried.
