Gourmet salts are unrefined, high-quality salts that are used in exotic kitchens to improve the taste, texture and appeal of food. They are also used to store canned food products to keep food longer. These salts, due to their high storage characteristics, find their application in the meat and seafood processing industry.

They are naturally refined unrefined salts (mainly sea salts) with relatively less sodium content and zero additives. Due to increasing exposure to media and mounting globalization, people are becoming more aware of different cuisines and are more open to experimenting with food. Using gourmet salt, the chefs improvise in the recipes, improve the organoleptic qualities and therefore increase the attractiveness. The growing demand for traditional kitchens with improved flavor has increased the demand for gourmet salt from food and beverage manufacturers and the foodservice industry.

Europe Gourmet Salt Market Growth and Trends:

Increased demand in the food and beverage and food service industries is expected to stimulate the European gourmet salt market over the forecast period. These are unrefined sea salts that are harvested by hand and give a rich texture to the food. Due to its positive properties, such as improved food taste, color, distinctive flavor, enriching aspect of food and pleasant aroma, regional demand is expected to grow strongly in years to come.

They are widely used in canned food applications as preservatives to increase their shelf life. At the same time, it is also useful for maintaining the moisture content of the products. These uses are likely to drive European industry growth over the foreseeable future. Gourmet salt also finds its application in dressings and condiments.

Drivers and Restraints:

The gourmet salt market is mainly driven by the growth of cooking and food fairs, as well as by the increase in gourmet restaurants in and around Europe. In addition, the rising standard of living of consumers and the increasing commercialization of the food industry are stimulating market growth. The tourism industry across Europe has skyrocketed in recent years, resulting in a greater number of hotels and restaurants. Several food service restaurants in the region are moving towards gourmet salt based on their health benefits compared to conventional salts.

The high sodium levels in typical salt results in health ailments like obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and others. Gourmet salts offer a perfect solution to this by providing limited sodium content, which does not burden the human body. This aspect is anticipated to act as a determinant for the demand of gourmet salt in the coming years, increasing market opportunities for the companies operating in this business.

However, market growth may be limited due to the high price associated with gourmet salts compared to conventional salts, owing to the high cost involved in the harvest. The high costs involved in harvesting, followed by processing, packaging, labeling and marketing are expected to restrict the Europe gourmet salt market during the forecast period further.
