Salt of The Earth Invested €1m to Launch an Automatic Packaging Line

Salt of the Earth, an Israeli salt producer, has invested €1m to launch an enhanced automatic packaging production line for tablets and granular salt products.

The company is replacing premade polyethylene (PE) bags with rolls and expands the product range to 10kg and 25kg packaging. The introduction of automated packaging system is backed on company's sustainability strategy.

Salt of the Earth CEO Dovik Tal said that the new packaging system is another step toward expanding on its sustainable strategy.

"We continue to actively seek ways to reduce energy consumption and resources and, above all, improve product quality - all of which have a direct effect on operating costs. The new system complies with the highest standards of quality and safety," added Tal.

The automated packaging line consists of a large storage tank, dual packing machine and conveyors custom-adjusted to the former packaging lines. In addition, the development is expected to increase production packing from 60 tons across three daily shipments to just one shipment per day.

Ofer Rokni, Managing Director of Salt of the Earth said: "The majority of malfunction risks in our former production line will now be resolved. Manual soldering is no longer required in the packaging process, and the packaging is of higher quality. Also, raw material is applied accurately via a special weighting system, leading to decreased waste. Post-production, stacking on palettes is also fully automated to provide employees a safer, healthier working environment."
