Oriel Marine Extracts
Oriel Marine Extracts began life as the Oriel Sea Salt Company in 2010 founded by Brian Fitzpatrick and John Delany. Based in Port Oriel in Clogherheard, Co. Louth, the company harvests a very pure and natural mineral sea salt which is used by many food companies to replace salt due to its lower sodium benefits and powerful taste profile. It also extracts a liquid magnesium and mineral complex used in functional drinks, beverages and food products.
In August 2016, the company became the only company in Europe to be granted Protected Designation of Origin status (PDO) by the EU Commission for their products. They are the only company in Europe to hold such recognition for their mineral extract and mineral sea salt. Oriel Marine Extracts has established its market position through globally patented technology, significant investment in science and research and the finest products in its class
Oriel Marine Extracts run a zero production waste operation. The raw material used in production is seawater and any un-used seawater is returned to the sea. Oriel operates at a zero waste to landfill status. All office and packaging waste is recycled.
Oriel are committed to promoting health and nutrition through the addition of a Health and Nutrition page on their company website. The page will provide information such as relevant health studies in relation to their Deep Sea Magnesium Mineral Extracts and Mineral Sea Salts, as well as healthy recipes.
Oriel Marine Extracts utilise 100% Forest Stewardship Council certified cardboard for their product packaging. In order to reduce and eliminate the use of chemicals during production, Oriel have committed to using only natural cleaning products.
