10602 Cerebos 70th birthday – web banner-1

Cerebos traces its name back to 1892 when a chemist decided to mix calcium phosphate with salt to mend his daughter’s weak bones. subsequently, the chemist discovered this combination gave the salt free flowing properties… a first of its kind!

See how it runs and the famous boy and chicken logo were used to illustrate the free flowing properties of the salt that could easily run through your fingers.

Cerebos derives its name from ‘Ceres’ the Roman goddess of agriculture and ‘os’ the French word for bone, which the phosphates in salt help to strengthen.
