First of all, the multiplicity of daily uses - from cleaning to cooking to beauty - which make it a real must have in every home. Secondly, being available in 4 different formats to meet the different needs of consumers: from the 1 kg format in recyclable cardboard for larger families to the smart one for smaller households; from the 600 gr plastic spreader, practical and functional, with a graduated transparent column to show the level and quantity of product inside as it is used; to the pack of 20 single-dose sachets of 10 gr, “handy”, for a calibrated personal use, practical, to avoid waste, and also very hygienic. Finally, the packaging, very colorful and impactful, full of valuable information and advice on use for the consumer.


After this period of health crisis due to Covid-19, the Ministry of Health contacted many cafes, bars, canteens and restaurants, inviting them not to equip themselves anymore and not to let customers use the typical glass (or plastic) salt spreaders. as they pass from hand to hand, they can be carriers of germs and bacteria.

All in favor of single-dose and disposable sachets, more hygienic and more practical. The Ministry of Health itself therefore contacted the producers and distributors of salt (and other primary seasonings) inviting them to expand their range with single-dose sachets of their seasoning. So here is the novelty signed by Gemma di mare: a tower display with a "wolf's mouth" opening and captivating graphics that contains 500 1g sachets of iodized salt. Ideal for bars, canteens and collective catering, it is the practical and hygienic solution to always have your own salt, the main condiment, available. Already portioned, in a convenient disposable sachet to avoid waste and comply with the hygiene rules in force today. All the quality of our Iodato, in this small (but smart) format
