Local salt is salt made from the seawater that surrounds Hong Kong

HK Salt is part of the local and independent food movement in Hong Kong. It was founded by Michael Leung, design, beekeeper and urban farmer

Michael is heavily inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s work and values, especially the Salt Satyagraha on 12th March 1930
