Salarius Receives Go-Ahead from an Additional Snack Food Company for Full-scale Production Run

Tekcapital Plc (AIM: TEK), the UK intellectual property (IP) investment group focused on creating marketplace value from investing in university technology, is pleased to announce that portfolio company Salarius ltd.

The snack food market is highly competitive, with snack food manufacturers competing for shelf space with competitor brands at small, mid-size and large leading retailers. One way these snack food manufacturers are differentiating themselves in such a crowded market is by having a heathier alternative version of their most popular brands, and they are learning they can do this with MicroSalt(R) without sacrificing the taste of their products."

Dr Clifford Gross, Executive Chairman at Tekcapital, commented: "We are glad to see Salarius' continued market traction as it expands its customer base and believe that MicroSalt(R) has the potential to empower consumers worldwide to enjoy full-flavour snacks with reduced sodium."

SupplySide West is attended by over 17,000 food industry decision makers and buyers looking to fuel their product innovations with the latest and most innovative food ingredients and solutions in the market.

About Salarius ltd

Salarius, is the developer and manufacturer of a proprietary low sodium salt called MicroSalt(R). Salarius is passionate about improving lives with healthier food and is 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. The 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 enhanced flavor consistency. To learn more please visit https://salarius.co/.
