Tekcapital #TEK – Investee Company Portfolio MicroSalt® lower sodium salt-shakers will launch 1 October 2022

Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK), (OTCQB: TEKCF) the UK intellectual property investment group focused on creating valuable products from investing in university technology that can improve people’s lives, is pleased to announce that MicroSalt® is slated to launch its salt-shakers, the first, full-flavour, lower sodium table salt, to major retail chains on 1st October 2022.

The MicroSalt® shakers will be available in both 2-ounce and 6-ounce sizes. These new shakers offer an improved way for consumers to reduce their sodium intake without sacrificing taste. To view shakers click here.

“We are proud to be able to bring such an essential product to consumers nationwide. Sodium is one of the leading contributors to hypertension and these shakers can help minimize the negative impact that excess sodium consumption has on human health,” says Rick Guiney, CEO of MicroSalt®.

MicroSalt® shakers will be debuted at the Expo East Food convention in Philadelphia the week of 28 September 2022, with sales beginning to major retail chains and food distribution channels starting October 2022.  MicroSalt® shakers will also be available for purchase on Amazon in the later part of October 2022.

MicroSalt® has already received commitments from UNFI, North America’s premier food wholesaler, for placement in several of its distribution centers.

MicroSalt® is also exploring product line extensions with sea salt and Himalayan salt as well as territorial expansion into the U.K., Western Europe and Canada beginning in 2023.

About MicroSalt

MicroSalt, is the developer and manufacturer of a proprietary low-sodium salt called MicroSalt®. We are passionate about improving peoples’ lives with better-for-you seasonings and snacks by taking the lead in the industry by providing the best low-sodium salt solution, based on the mechanical transformation of the salt particle itself. This solution is the only one that delivers real salt flavor because it is salt. Our new patented technology produces salt crystals that are approximately one hundred times smaller than typical table salt, delivering a powerful saltiness as the micro-grains dissolve in the mouth, with approximately 50% less sodium consumption. Additionally, the ultra-small particle size enhances product adhesion, which reduces waste and provides improved flavor consistency. MicroSalt® and SaltMe® are registered trademarks of MicroSalt Inc.
