Mount Zero Olives.is a family owned olive grove three hours west of Melbourne on the northern edge of the Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia. Commitment to flavour, sustainable farming and a passion for quality ingredients defines Mount Zero and all that we gather and Banksia Lane is proud to partner with them and offer this selection of products.
Pink Lake Salt Fine Shaker - natural pink salt sourced just 50km up the road from the Mount Zero olive grove.
The lake is fed by natural salt aquifers and each summer dries out to reveal a bed of salmon coloured pink salt. Mount Zero and the lake's traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council have been working together to hand harvest a small amount of salt from the lake each year.
Though analysis of the salt we know that it is a concentrated store of natural mineral nutrients - rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc and copper as well as being rich in beta carotene. This complexity of minerals, provides a complex, well rounded flavour - dissimilar to many sharp tasting refined salts.
Mount Zero Pink Lake Salt is a natural gourmet salt product which varies in pigment from wet to dry. The local provenance of the salt, along with the hand harvesting, natural sun drying and the salts beautiful flavour and colour are a mirror Mount Zero's core principles of regionalism, sustainability and quality.
