The name of the province of Pangasinan comes from the word “asin”. Hence, Pang-asin-an literally means “the place where salt is made.”
This is where the salt making industry of the Philippines had its humble beginnings and where innovations come from. Pangasinan is home to Salinas Foods, and its saltfarm, Pacific Farms Inc. After several years of research both in the field of culinary arts, and its salt fields in Pangasinan, Salinas now brings you Aro-en Gourmet Salt.
Aro-en comes from the Pangasinan phrase which means “to love”. In sharing our love for deliciously home-cooked meals and expertly prepared gourmet dishes, we at Salinas created Aro-en. And as the people of Pangasinan express their love and warmth through their cooking, they say, “Aro-en taka.” (mamahalin kita)
