AgriSal® – the new brand for agricultural salts
Swiss Saltworks launches its new AgriSal® brand on 1 October 2016. The AgriSal®brand will cover the entire range of different salts required by agricultural livestock and wild animals: from pure feed material salt, iodine-enriched cattle salt and mineral-enriched salt lick stones through to our natural salt lick stones made with salt extracted from salt mines. Sodium and chloride ions, chemically bonded as salt, are vital dietary elements for both human beings and animals. With few exceptions, vegetable feed for agricultural livestock contains very little salt. Healthy cattle need a regular supply of salt.

The whole of Switzerland is excellently supplied with salt – a genuine Swiss commodity
Bex and Schweizerhalle, 1 July 2014. Two companies with lengthy traditions are to join forces. The Canton of Vaud acceded to the 1973 Intercantonal Agreement on the Sale of Salt in Switzerland at the end of June 2014 after no referendum had been held on expiry of the period stipulated for this purpose. This means that the merger between Saline de Bex SA and Swiss Saltworks on the Rhine AG can definitely go ahead, in legal terms and as regards business management. The united Swiss salt company will immediately launch its market presence under the new name of Swiss Saltworks AG.
