Morton Salt Company started in Chicago in 1848 under a different name as a sales agency, only later becoming the prominent in the salt business. It was Joy Morton who acquired a a major interest in the late 1880s who stamped his name on the company. Morton is credited with many innovation including adding an anti caking agent to keep table salt dry even in damp conditions. It wasn't until 1924 that Morton Salt Company began distributing iodized salt nationally in part to address the prevalence of goiters in the Great Lakes region. Today, the company is the leading producer and marketer of salt for food, industrial, and road uses.
