THE ENVIRONMENT

Murray River Salt has worked closely with government authorities to access the brine from the Mourquong Salt Mitigation Basin which is part of the Salt Interception Scheme which is a vital scheme that ensures saline water does not enter the precious fresh water resources in the Murray Darling Basin such as the Murray River.

Murray River Salt has been able to tap into a natural resource and convert it into a value added gourmet food product whilst contributing to protecting our environment from the detrimental effects of salinity.  In 2004, the Governor General awarded Sunsalt the National Institute of Engineers Salinity Award.  This award is for companies who have demonstrated successful methods of reducing salinity impacts on the environment.
