Hawaii Kai Corporation
World's Finest Sea Salts and Ocean-based Products
Visit This Company's Website

For centuries, Hawaiians on the tiny island of Molokai have harvested salt from her clean, clear waters.

In 2003, Kent Clampitt, a visionary entrepreneur and engineer, was vacationing on Molokai with his wife Peggy, and they experienced first-hand the outstanding taste and purity of these superlative sea salts. So began a fascinating journey of research, discovery, and innovation.

Commercial table salt, and, indeed, most gourmet salts, contain approximately 99% sodium chloride. By having a scientific analysis performed on the Molokai "whole salt" harvested by traditional methods, Kent determined that it contained only 81% sodium chloride. The remaining 19% was comprised of some 80 natural elements, electrolytes, and trace minerals that imparted the salt's exceptional taste qualities.

Research evolved into a vision: to create a new, high-technology company able to produce the world's finest gourmet sea salts in commercial quantities, laying the foundation for a unique, micro-economic business model for Molokai residents.

In the Hawaiian language, "kai" means "ocean," the source of life, so the fledgling company was named Hawaii Kai—with a mission to produce an incomparable suite of ocean-based products, bringing to the world the essence of the source.
