About us

The founders and owners

William (Bill) and Laura Adams founded  The Chicken Salt Co. in 2017 shortly after moving from Sydney to London. Our mission is to import authentic chicken salt and sell it to hungry people across the UK and Ireland; British and Irish people who miss chicken salt after trying it on holiday alongside Australians and Kiwis living abroad.

We do everything ourselves; website hosting and design, label designs, social media and purchasing labels, bags and postage, as well as importing chicken salt from Australia. In a way this gives us a huge amount of flexibility to help customers and businesses alike, decision making is… well pretty simple with just two people!

Why hasn’t anyone done this before?

That is both a good question and a very good question. We’re not sure ourselves. If we’re not the first, what happened to the previous attempts? Chicken salt is dynamite and it practically sells itself!
