Taste Success in Salt Packaging with Nichrome

Salt (NaCl) is one of the oldest commodities used in man’s food. In ancient India, it

was regarded as ‘God’s gift’; Homer describes it as ‘Divine Commodity’; according to

Marco Polo’s travelogues, cakes of salt were being used as money. In India, historical

records speak about the dominance of salt as a medium of exchange and much

before the invasion of Alexander, the Great, around 327 BC, salt was extracted from

the salt mines of the Northern India and transported to different parts of the


In modern times, India is the third largest Salt producing Country in the World after

China and USA. It is estimated that the production of salt will reach 324 million

metric tons in 2018 and 400 million tonnes by 2020. China would continue to

represent the leading salt

market while India is projected

to rank as the world’s fastest

growing salt consumer. (Roskill,


In India, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and

Rajasthan contribute to about

96% of the Country’s salt

production. Gujarat contributes

75% to the total production,

followed by Tamil Nadu (11 %)

and Rajasthan (10 %). Salt

manufacturing activities are also carried out in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra,

Karnataka, Orissa, West Bengal and Goa. Among these States only Gujarat, Tamil

Nadu and Rajasthan produces salt surplus to their requirement.

With a view to ensure universal access of iodized salt for the prevention and control

of goiter and other iodine deficiency disorders in the country, Government of India

has adopted the strategy of Universal Salt Iodisation and Consumption for

elimination of Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) in the country under the National

Iodine Deficiency Disorders Control Programme (NIDDCP).

Indian salt industry is meeting the challenge of supplying iodized salt to entire

country. Most of the salt produced is iodized salt and new varieties such as Iron


Fortified Salt, Double Forfeited Salt and "Health Salt" (containing micronutrients

iodine, iron, folic acid) are also available.

Private sector plays a dominant role contributing over 95% of the salt production.

The top brands in India are Tata Salt, Captain Cook, i-shakthi, Aashirvadh, Annapurna,

Surya Salt, Sambhar Salt, Nirma Shudh and many more. These companies are

working towards new product introductions through different salt variants and

formats to counter unbranded and regional salt brands. While 1 Kg packs are

popular, manufacturers are turning to smaller SKUs (stock keeping units) like 100

gms and 500 gms. Smaller SKUs give better in-store visibility, and get fresh

consumers who want to try quality products, especially in the smaller towns.

Export of common salt and iodized salt is permitted under Open General License

(O.G.L.). China is a big importer of Indian salt. It is also exported to Japan, Philippines,

Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Bhutan and the USA.
