When you do what you love anything is possible!


Steel City Salt Company is a small family business that officially launched in 2014, bringing on a new era of flavor and cooking to Pittsburgh and the surrounding regions. It started with avid cook, pizzaiolo, and spice guru, John Tarallo who wanted to change the way people thought about not only food but salt too! Cooking great food with quality ingredients is the first step to a healthier body and a better world.

With his interest in cooking and unusual ingredients, John set out to find the most unique salts from around the world. From flaky to fine, moist to dry, he only chooses the best-of-the-best from each region. Another aspect of the company where Steel City Salt truly shines is the small batch blends, infusions, and fresh ground spices. We offer a wide variety of smoked salts, spicy salts, truffle saturated, malt vinegar infused, and many other salt-based blends while also working with whole & fresh ground spices, sugars, and so much more! As a family business, we learned early on that the key is quality and exceptional customer service. All of our blends, packaging, and orders are all hand-filled in order to maintain freshness, integrity, and quality. When you do what you love, anything is possible, so we are always experimenting and coming up with new flavors and in keeping with exceptional service!

With exponential growth over the last few years, along with the opening of our new HQ and Storefront in Millvale, we are always creating and expanding our selection, proudly offering our salts, blends, spices, & sugars directly to you. You can also find our products in hundreds of retailers, makers, collaborators, and restaurants nationwide!
