Onondaga SBDC Client Story of the Month
Syracuse Salt Company
The story of the salt industry in Syracuse is the stuff of legend and a tale of the early development of the city. In the mid 1800’s to early 1900’s Syracuse produced more salt than any other place in the United States, rightfully earning the name: The Salt City.
Now in the 21st Century a father and daughter team is endeavoring to return that claim to fame to Syracuse. David Iannicello and Libby Croom are the owners of Syracuse Salt Co., a company that inherited its name from one of the last salt producers in Syracuse over 100 years ago.
In 2015 David and Libby started Syracuse Salt fully intending to revive the history and legacy of “the Salt City.” They were right on the cusp of the “foodie” trend where serious cooks were becoming as aware as professional chefs of the importance of salt in food preparation. Libby brought her public relations skills and David his own knowledge of flavor balance from his years of restaurant experience.
