THE SALT SHAKER
What’s Shaking?
SALT is engaged in a "Pause & Reflect" process, reviewing what strategies have worked well in the first half of our project, and determining how to best accomplish our objectives going forward. We look forward to sharing our results with you.
 

We are pleased to announce that Iberostar has joined the SALT Advisory CommitteeWe're also glad to welcome Farid Maruf to the SALT team as a Technical Advisor, analyzing the challenges and opportunities for electronic seafood traceability systems in Southeast Asia as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
