    Has anyone received this seasons salt pricing yet? Just wondering how everyone is doing with the Detroit Salt tragedy.

    Yes...price is up significantly from one vendor but so is our allocation.

    Another said the pricing is about the same and availability is not an issue.

    Still waiting on #3.

    I was told at the Symposium by a Compass rep they would be selling to contractors this year. He lied.

    I just saw the algoma innovator docking, which usually means we're getting more of that good kanadian salt. Maybe the meatchickens will get some good brown salt.

    If you’re referring to the Egyptian salt, that stuff was garbage and doesn’t deserve to be called “salt”

    No one has returned me any official pricing. I heard wind of $69-89 here. The port stock piles are building to unseen amounts.
