THE HALEN MÔN TEAM

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

Halen Môn has been a family business since the very beginning, and Alison and David’s children are all involved 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, and pride ourselves on being an artisan business. Look on the bottom of any pouch or tube and you’ll find  the initials of the person who packed it for you. 

 We hope to welcome you to our beautiful sea salt factory shop soon so you can try some of our Welsh sea salt for yourself.
