Located 80 kilometers southwest of the city of Iquique in the Tarapacá region of northern Chile, the Tarapacá salt flat is not only an attractive Chilean tourist destination, but is considered to be one of the most extensive and least contaminated salt deposits on earth.
It is estimated that its reserves could meet global demand for at least 5 thousand years. Its raw material is obtained via open pit mining, resulting in scaled extraction of its resources from various levels and depths based on the subsequent use of each type of salt.
The Great Tarapacá salt flat has an annual production capacity of 26 thousand tons. Located in close proximity to the port of Patillos and its customs services, its products are efficiently distributed throughout the country and exported abroad.
By means of extraction, production and logistics processes that meet the highest standards of quality and respect for the environment, Lobos produces salt for each of the many diverse food industry’s and Chilean home consumer’s needs.
Due to these facts, Lobos is renowned worldwide for its unparalleled product quality, whiteness, purity and flavor.
