Oriel harvest a very pure and natural mineral sea salt which is used by leading food brands improve taste profiles and to replace salt due to it's lower sodium benefits and powerful taste profile. Oriel also extracts a liquid Magnesium and Mineral complex used in Functional drink, beverage and food products.

In August 2016 the company became the only company in Europe to be granted Protected Designation of Origin status (PDO) by the EU Commission for their Magnesium Mineral Extract and Mineral Sea Salt products.
