Salt harvesting is done only during the summer period i.e. from the month of May/ June till the end of August/September always depending from the weather.
The salt is produced from natural elements such as sun, wind and the evaporation of sea water. Xwejni salt is collected manually with a lot of care and attention following traditional methods. A lot of laborious and intensive work is involved. It is purely natural and genuine.
