Australian Saltworks is privately owned Australian company with owners working in the business. The company has salt fields and manufacturing operations in Langhorne Creek in South Australia and in Bowen in Queensland. The business has a low cost base and is the best located salt business to service Queensland, NSW, Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian markets. The company has significant established capacity in South Australia where climate and back freight rates allow easy access to eastern Australian markets. Its Bowen operation which is the northern most saltfield in Australia is able to economically supply customers in all areas of Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Australian Saltworks’ well located operations allow the business to be competitive in all parts of the country. The company has a growing presence in the West Australian market and also exports to New Zealand and the Pacific region.

The owners, directors and staff collectively have a wealth of experience in the Australian domestic and international salt markets. This equips the business well to continue to manage its growth in a competitive marketplace.

The company's growth in the Australian market is underpinned by recent and current additional solar salt developments in South Eastern Australia and Northern Australia where investment in the business has resulted in a significant capacity increase over the last decade. This additional product is now being delivered to market through a greatly expanded and branded product range and an efficient distribution network. The company is focussed on growth and has a significant development underway to produce solar salt on a green field site at Bajool near Rockhampton in Queensland. This development will supplement supply from its Bowen operations and fill a salt production capacity gap in the Queensland market. A new solar salt field development in West Australia will reduce transport costs associated with current product supply. The company is continuing to invest in its operations in South Australia and Queensland to add further capacity and reduce operating costs.

Through an alliance with Salt International we are able to offer high quality imported vacuum salt products where solar salt does not meet food grade customer needs.

Australian Saltworks prides itself on listening to customer needs and is able to differentiate itself by providing a broad range of solar salt products whilst maintaining a focus on its customers. We value our employees and we ensure our business systems manage worker safety, the quality of our products and the environment in which we function. We have a lean structure and we make quick decisions.
