In Moinho das Meias of the Nature Reserve of Sapal de Castro Marim, the Salmarim company collects flor de sal (salt flower). After acquiring this crystals, that must be hand-harvested by scraping only the top layer of slat before it sinks to the bottom of large salt pans, they are placed in cork packages so they can retain their qualities.

These crystals are an artisanal food product that is commercialized worldwide. However, it is scarce and it requires labour-intensive production, which means it is one of the most expensive types of salt.
