Featured Customer: SALTOPIA Artisan Infused Sea Salts

SALTOPIA Artisan Infused Sea Salts is a family owned and run business. Kimarie Santiago is founder and creator of the brand: SALTOPIA. The brand is dedicated to creating superior sea salt products while also encouraging the SALTOPIA lifestyle: getting back to the roots with families. At SALTOPIA, staff is encouraged to bring their children with them to the farms they support, to hand select the ingredients used to infuse SALTOPIA Sea Salts. An important focus for their company is to support sustainability by purchasing produce from local farms for their infused creations.

What makes your product unique?

SALTOPIA uses only naturally harvested sea salts from all over the world. We infuse a pure flavor by allowing the salts to absorb the natural juices and aromas that are extracted from hand selected herbs, fruits, vegetables, wines and other organic goods. While there may be other companies making “infused sea salts,” they are extremely different because they use dry or dehydrated ingredients with little flavor. Each of SALTOPIA’s unique sea salts has its own proprietary recipe that incorporates a chemistry of sea salt and pure flavor.

How do you package your products and what ClearBags™ products do you use?

We currently use ClearBags™ boxes to make our products look BEAUTIFUL! We selected the 4″ x 2″ x 6″ Small Clear Tapered Tote Box [FS279] to package each SALTOPIA jar along with a recipe card and a salt spoon. We also use ClearBags™ Kraft Stand Up Zipper Pouch Bags to bulk package our salts.

Where do you sell your product?

We sell through privately owned stores, third party mail order catalogs, food distribution companies (for restaurants and food service), online (through our own website as well as partnered ecommerce websites), and our affiliate program.

How long have you been working with ClearBags™ and how does ClearBags™ help you succeed?

We’ve been ordering through ClearBags™ for about 3 years now. It’s been great – excellent service, custom created packaging and superior products.

What one piece of advice would you give to other business owners?

Listen to others advice. As business owners, we are “type A” personalities, which means we are most likely control freaks! It’s best to not tackle everything alone, but to take good advice from others. I listen to podcasts and other media outlets when I have time. My favorite topic is listening to other entrepreneurs. Our struggles are always the same: employees, capital, shipping costs, etc. It’s refreshing to hear their ideas on struggles we all have to manage as business owners!
