SEA SALT CAPEA – Resource-saving and environmentally friendly


In Spanish, "Capea" means "Mastering it Skillful".  It has been like that for several years already, and our heraldic motto is still prevailing.

Our Atlantic Sea Salt is harvested in Spain´s coast and arose as a German-Spanish project back in 1992.

The idea was to obtain natural sea salt, without anticaking agents. that could be used in organic food and by feed producers.

The combination of traditional harvesting methods and the permanent technology innovations are our key strategies, which guarantee the outstanding quality of our coveted sea salt.
CAPEA is 100% made of Atlantic sea salt. Which means it is completely natural and has no additives.
It is an incredible and tasteful product, filled with minerals and trace elements to a competitive price.

Atlantic sea salt is generally smoother than Mediterranean Sea salt. It has a different taste and texture. Of course, it is also Sodium chloride (NaCl), but all over the world there are Chefs using Atlantic sea salt because of its taste and texture. The minerals and trace elements, the structure, the humidity and the content of NaCl distinguish the different types of salts. We try to harmonize these elements to get the perfect product.

Some people argue that sea salt is just NaCl, that just from 1% to -3% are humidity minerals and trace elements. We believe that a salt made of 100 % refined NaCl or a natural salt made of 97%-99% NaCl, makes a huge difference.

Nowadays, Capea sea salt is the first option of organic food and feed producers. Our salt is also used in the Healthcare Sector by well-known companies, to make Bath Salt and Body Scrubs.


Quality by nature and technology 

Since 1992 alisa GmbH has carefully cultivated partnerships with salt producers. With the creation of CAPEA, we aim to become pioneer in the introduction of new guidelines and quality standards, based on new and fresh ideas to innovate the natural sea salt market. In order to supply sea salt without anticaking-agents the whole value chain was optimized. It was a challenge to supply natural sea salt without anticaking agents, but we succeeded. Wind and sun are still our natural allies in obtaining a totally natural sea salt. The sun for example, oversees the evaporation.

After the harvest, the salt is washed with purified sea water, then it is placed to get dried and lastly it is sieved. And that's it!

Afterwards, Laser Vision Systems separate very small particles, called foreign materials. This part of the process helps us avoiding the use of mechanical means.


Organic Sea Salt / Which Sea Salt could be used for organic products?

Sea Salt for Organic Products must be obtained only by mechanical, physical, biological, enzymatic or bacterial processes, in accordance with article 21 of regulation 834/2007.
It must be free of additives. Part A of Index VIII of regulation 008/889 died not authorize anti-caring agents (EU Regulation / Issued 2007).

Capea Atlantic Sea Salt is untreated and free of anti-caking agents since 1992. It meets the requirements of the mentioned regulation. Furthermore, we offer our clients organic sea salt of Mediterranean origin in 25kg bags. Certified Organic by Intereco.

Capea Atlantic Sea Salt / Microplastic - Impact on Human Health

  Microplastics derive from the huge amount of plastics all over the world. They have been found in all kind of food products. Honey, Sugar, Salt, Mineral Water, Milk and many more. For CAPEA Atlantic Sea Salt there is good news. Our sea salt was tested several times by a specialized German laboratory. The microplastics values are very low. The salines are located on the South of Spain, where the iberic peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean. The waters are notably unpolluted and regularly controlled.  Our salt basins are embedded in natural reserves and the pollution is therefore reduced. The Atlantic Ocean of the European Coast is less affected than others.  The intake of microplastics by consuming  our sea salt is very small. The density of microplastics found in salt varies, those from Asian brands were especially high.  Furthermore, hand harvested salts are obviously more affected, but there is no reason to exaggerate. We are doing our best to reduce the use of plastic. We started using innovative material for our Capea 25kg bags, reducing 18,5 % of plastic packaging material that way.  

Sustainablity & Free Trade

Sustainability is an integral part of our company´s DNA.
Capea Atlatic Sea Salt produces a minimal ecological footprint. Raw sea salt is produced with the sun and wind. Rock salt or vaccum salt requires a lot of energy to produce it.
In terms of CO2 emissions the production of sea salt is the best option. A lot of salt mines are far away and the salt must be transported a lot of miles. On the other way, Capea Sea Salt is shipped to Hamburg and distributed from here or distributed directly to our clients. The distances are shorter and the ecological impact is lower.

When we created the brand CAPEA  the aim was to maintan the balance of industrial production and the Evironment. The question is, if it makes sense to consume a local unhealthily mined salt or to import a healthy salt, even if it produces a bigger ecological footprint.

In the case of sea salt the decision is easier, because of the small ecological footprint of sea salt. Nevertheless, each time the pro and contras must be considered. Sustainabilty shouldn´t reduce the free trade with developing countries.

Developing countries can benefit from the free trade.  Jobs are created in poor or developing regions, by exporting salt or other food. Free trade and Sustainability should go hand in hand. Improving the quality of Life of all citizens over the world.
