We import organic saffron with certification for halal grade 1 all red filament tips. Saffron is the World's most expensive spice and its price is high due to the fact it takes some 150,000 crocus flowers to produce 1 Kg of dried saffron filaments of grade 1. The saffron price is also caused by the extremely labour intensive harvesting process which must be done by hand and normally by women who have the delicate hands for picking the delicate flowers. Using machinery for harvest would damage and ruin the delicate flowers and their precious saffron filaments which are the stigma portion of the flower with the highest concentration of active compounds crocin (colour), picocrocin and safranal (flavour) and it is the all red tips which are the finest quality in the World.
The saffron price varies every time we order a shipment fromthe producers and the index is exactly as a commodity like gold or silver fluctuates, however we always keep our prices as low as possible and for organic spice we offer unbeatable on line prices and deliver to you by signed tracked delivery to your door and we dispatch orders the same day they are made.
