How it all began
Selling natural salt from the Carpathians, Andreas Hagen left the Salzkammergut in Austria to found KönigsSalz in Germany in October 2002. Two years later, in December 2004, the company was taken over by Lotte Heck who brought her long-term experience in marketing and sales along with her. The name of KönigsSalz was registered for copyright protection.
Over time many natural salts from all over the world were added to the portfolio. In January 2005 a salt block for horses was developed and introduced to the market. It immediately attracted attention. Lotte Heck therefore reinforced the sales and continued to develop the division of natural salt products and salt blocks for horses.
