Surya Salt


Diaspora Co. is proud to be partnering with the Agariya community, a tribe that has been working in the salt district of Gujarat, India for generations, to bring you this solar-powered, earth-filtered, and hand-pounded salt. Using solar pumps provided by local NGO partners, the Agariyas harvest this bright, inland salt from the desert’s underground water table.

The salt’s high-mineral content is preserved through a slow-filtration process through the desert soil. In partnership with a local women's self-help group, whose members then hand-pound the salt to the perfect texture for everyday use, they are able to ensure that the salt retains as much flavor as possible.
