Laura Cristobal Andersland, owner and creator of Salty Wahine, created her first rub at age 11. Laura started the company in June 2008, after retiring from a twenty-nine year career in the travel industry. One could say that she turned her passion for cooking (flavoring foods and making them unique) into a business, and has been having the time of her life ever since.Salty Wahine uses the local flavors of not only herbs and spices, but also of tropical fruits to create amazing fruit infused blends that not only taste good, but are eye-appealing. Salty Wahine takes pride in the fact that 82.76% of her end product is Hawaii origin.
Mrs. Cristobal Andersland has taken Salty Wahine from craft fairs and farmers markets(where the products are still available) to a distribution on all of the Hawaiian Islands. Her products can also be found in various "mom and pop" shops in New York, Florida, Canada, Saipan, and Europe! When asked about her distribution, Laura replies, "I think it is really important to sell my products in mom and pop shops because I truly believe that these stores are the backbone of America."
