Our Locations

With sites positioned at two idyllic locations in the Bay of Plenty and Marlborough regions, we offer two great places to live and work.

Our Work Place

Dominion Salt are the only salt manufacturing company in New Zealand and employ over 100 staff between our two sites located at Mount Maunganui and Lake Grassmere.

We are one of three business units in a broader Salt Group, which is owned by CKLS. Dominion Salt are associated with Cheetham Salt in Australia and Cheetham Garam Indonesia. 

Our Mount Maunganui site exclusively manufactures Pharmaceutical Sodium Chloride using state of the art technology in a vacuum refinery which is the only one of its kind in Australasia. Our Pharmaceutical product is ranked in the top 5 in the world and its popularity is growing.

Lake Grassmere is where our salt business was first established back in 1963 and we have been harvesting salt there ever since. It is a landmark site with its high stock piles of salt and pink lakes visible to passer-byers. Marlborough salt has become a sought after product that is exclusively produced at Lake Grassmere by people that are passionate about this region.

Our roots are firmly connected with our NZ salt making founder George Skellerup. We draw on his vision of doing things because they can be done. We are a company that takes pride in doing things better, smarter and to the highest of quality.
