Delayed Deliveries

January 14th, 2022

Royal Mail has been a disaster for delivery times since early December, caused by severe staff shortages due to COVID-19. We’re really sorry to all those waiting up to 2 weeks and and in some cases 3 weeks for Second Class orders when they should have arrived in 2-4 working days. It’s not good enough.

We have taken the decision to switch all deliveries to First Class and absorb the cost difference to ensure customers get the best experience. Our delivery page has been updated to reflect these changes!

The Stocking Filler

December 11th, 2021

The Stocking Filler is everything no one asked for; The Adventurer (30g) or The Headliner (75g) in a yellow box with yellow paper filler and a card (denouncing the weather but guaranteeing the magical qualities of chicken salt) for your loved ones or puzzled office colleagues.

Give a gift this Christmas that is quite literally imported Australian seasoned salt.

Deliveries to EU

October 22nd, 2021

We lost the battle against Brexit bureaucracy. The option of delivery to the Ireland/EU has now been indefinitely suspended. Since July 2021 almost 80% of orders destined for the EU have been subject to excessive customs import fees or just straight up rejection on arrival at customs, despite having our customs declarations verified by a customs expert.

What is Chicken Salt?

Chicken salt is arguably the finest seasoning for fresh hot chips and rotisserie chickens in the world. Bright yellow and packed with flavour, Australians douse chicken salt on their food at every local takeaway.

Imported from Australia

The best chicken salt is the stuff made in Australia and used in takeaways. It’s bright yellow and tastes unmistakable. We could have tried to make our own but it wouldn’t be the same… so we imported it directly from the manufacturer!

Who are we?

The Chicken Salt Co. is the first and only chip shop chicken salt seller filling a gap in the UK market for the real deal chicken salt you find in local takeaways in Australia… not the supermarket stuff but the real imported wholesaler salt, coarsely grounded and intensely yellow.


100% the bright yellow, tasty chicken salt I’ve been looking for!

Australia’s best kept secret

The legendary chicken salt

Although Chicken salt is the default go-to fluorescent chip seasoning for most Australians, it is largely unknown to the world outside Australia. Canadians have their poutine, Belgians have their mayo. Australians have their chicken salt.

Where did it come from?

Originally developed in the 1970s by two Europeans living in Adelaide, chicken salt was used as a seasoning for rotisserie chickens to add flavour and colour. Chicken shop owners would also add chicken salt to chips (known as hot chips) and it’s popularity spread to all corners of Australia.

So it’s pretty popular then?

Chicken salt is the mainstay seasoning in almost every takeaway across Australia and you’ll be hard pressed to find an Australian living abroad that won’t tell you how they firmly believe chicken salt should be available everywhere to douse all over their chips.

What does it taste like?

Controversially chicken salt doesn’t taste of chicken and is not made from chicken. It is designed to enhance the flavour of the food it’s sprinkled on. We’ve even tried it on popcorn with excellent results!

Is chicken salt vegetarian?

Yes it is! Chicken salt is mainly salt, sugar, spices (garlic, onion and paprika) and flavour enhancers. Chicken salt is not vegan as animal products were used to refine one of the ingredients.
