COMPANY HISTORY: Royal Salt Co (Pty) Ltd (since 1996)
Simon Schiff started Royal Salt Pans in 1972. He developed the company into a financially rewarding concern with the help of a loyal and competent management team.
The take-over of Royal Salt Pans by Donald Brown Group in 1996 was to everyone's advantage as they could supply a wider range of products at a less expensive rate to the market. Both Salt companies have had the same mission - to supply a quality product at an affordable price.
Once the "Royal Marriage" between Royal Salt Pans and Donald Brown Group took place, the Seepo logo, got a new face. The logo was used on all the 500 g and 1 kg packaging and the colours changed to match the new company's corporate colours and image.
The colour coding is used to verify the different salts, i.e. blue = coarse salt; green = medium salt; orange = fine salt; purple = table salt.
The joint venture between Donald Brown Group and Royal Salt Pans has indeed proved to be mutually beneficial. In the words of Simon Schiff , " I was reluctant to sell Royal Salt Pans at first - it is a company close to my heart and it was very important to me to find the right buyer. Not only did I need the assurance that whoever buys my company, will carry on developing it and maintain the high standards I have set in the past; I also needed to know that my staff will be well looked after. I have always had the highest regard for Donald Brown and Saltcor, and my decision to sell to him proved to be the right one. I have received nothing but positive feedback from business acquaintances regarding the manner in which Donald and his team conducts business. I am very glad I sold Royal Salt to professionals".
