Salt prices remain healthy despite record levels of trading

Roskill’s Kerry Satterthwaite speaks to Proactive London’s Andrew Scott ahead of next week’s international salt industry conference in Amsterdam.

She says China is the world’s largest salt producer but also imported more than 10Mt of it last year, adding that, as a region, Asia is the largest net importer of salt in the world.

Satterthwaite says that in 2018, estimated global salt exports hit a new record of 71.47Mt compared to 64.51Mt the previous year.
