THE HALEN MÔN TEAM

We are a small yet strong team of twenty something people,  a Jack Russell called Bella and a chocolate labradoodle called Jolene, who can normally be found trying to snaffle somebody’s sandwiches.

We have been a family business since the very beginning, and Alison and David’s three children all work for HM in different ways.

We think it is as important as it is reassuring to know that your food has been made by a real person. That is why we add the initials of each packer onto every single pouch and tube of sea salt we produce.

You can match the initials on your salt to the pictures on this page.
