It is called the red gold, consists of stamens from the plant saffron-crocus, and is one of the world’s finest spices. We have now bought two kilos in Afghanistan together with Karlsens Krydderier, and the shipment is on its way to Denmark.
Afghanistan produces some of the world’s finest saffron and the one we have bought is a high-quality saffron, which we are very much looking forward to presenting to Danish customers.
The sale of saffron creates jobs and income for both farmers and women, who are often responsible for the production itself. And then it is a good alternative to the harmful opium production.
It is the Danish organization DACAAR that has helped the farmers in the Saffron Association of Barnabad start growing saffron, and we have bought through the company Afghanistan Saffron Company/Herat Saffron which is both certified and professional.
It’s a good story in every way.
