dwells at Inner Argentina.
Salt, together with air and water is one of the three
main elements for the body to function well. It is present
in the soil as underground sources, salt pits or salt
mines. Since the beginning of life on Earth its leadership
has been crucial, as it had great influence on the location
of towns and cities, it was used for preserving food,
it created superstitions and wars, and furthermore,
it was used as a means of payment, which originated
the term salaries.
Burruyacú, in the province of Tucumán,
under the fertile soil and the abundant vegetation,
saturated brine reserves are hidden since prehistoric
times. The only place in Argentina where rock salt is
dissolved by underground water currents. A natural treasure,
from which Indians extracted salt for trade.
These are the reasons why CELUSAL chose this location
to build its industrial plant, with up-to-date manufacturing
technology and automation of the packaging process,
generating an optimal level of production that places
it as the leader of table salt within the market.
In the southern part of Argentina, very close to the
Patagonia, a privileged area worldwide for its environmental
features, you can find the salt pit Colorada Grande
at General San Martín, in the province of La
Pampa. A majestic 7,200 hectares mine on open land,
from which CELUSAL extracts sodium chloride in its natural
state. This is where CELUSAL produces Coarse and Barbeque
For all this reasons it is said that, since 1936 the
overwhelming force of nature and a history that dates
back to our very early origins, is crystallized in every
grain of CELUSAL salt.
