The first large Brazilian salt works was installed in Brazil in 1828, in Cabo Frio, by a German military attaché, after obtaining a land concession from Emperor Pedro I.
At the beginning of the 20th century, there was a great increase in extraction areas from the arrival of Portuguese salt producers, driven by the interest in producing salt in the region to supply the Brazilian domestic market.
Several salt works settled in the region and thus began salt production in Brazil.
The Refinery has a staff of approximately 500 employees and a production capacity of 20,000 tons/month.
In addition, the Cisne brand is known and recognized as a reference in salt in the Brazilian market, by consumers and their industrial customers. Furthermore, we export our products to different countries.
We are very proud to be part of the history of Brazilian families.
