This is the biggest saffron export deal in the world.
It’s going to strengthen Iran’s place as the first hub of saffron in the world and will mark as a long stride toward closing the price of Iranian saffron to global rates.
Iran produces more than 90% of the world’s saffron each year.
Compared to saffron produced in other countries, Iranian saffron has a deeper red color and a tingling aroma specific to this product.
The Iranian saffron also known as the “red gold” is a magical ingredient in Persian culture, from aromatic foods and colorful desserts, to the physical and spiritual medicine.
The expensive spice has long been a high-demand commodity and even triggered a war in 1374 in central Europe.
