The salt is stored by TRAD Y SEL on its site, on other sites, or remains stored at the producer. The stock is the most important link in the process, as it guarantees the availability of raw materials, whatever the weather conditions. Adverse conditions may affect harvests for several consecutive years, so it is comfortable, in a normal period, to have a stock equivalent to 2 to 3 years of sales.
Producers/providers are chosen for their skill and professionalism (unlike a cooperative structure which cannot refuse adhesion for subjective criteria). This capacity of choice and exclusion of poor producers ensures regular supplies of a quality product.
At the end of each year a quantitative and qualitative review is carried out with each salt provider, compared to the annual contract. If they have additional quantities to deliver, or available stocks, they indicate the location.
It is the time to identify the amounts available for the following year depending on the sellers' wishes, the number of "oeillets" under production and the nature of the contract desired by the provider: exclusive or not, fixed or free tonnage...
TRAD Y SEL has a packaging workshop with a capacity of 35 tonnes / day, comprising four packaging lines. The production tool can fill all types of containers - buckets, bags, boxes (cardboard, PET, plastic) and sacks ranging from 25 g to 25 kg.
