There is many different names like saffron crocus, autumn crocus, and etc. However, in Persian, it pronounced as Z’aferan (in Persian: زعفران). Probably, you heard about the European saffron like Spanish saffron, Italian saffron, Greek saffron or Turkish saffron. Honestly, these countries (especially Spain and Italy) buy saffron bulks from Iran and focus on packaging, branding, marketing, and sales of saffron. Today, Iranian farmers produce around 90 percent of world saffron but less than 15 percent of sellers to End-Users are Iranian brands.
We in Saffronir Company as a local brand in Iran are trying to connect the Iranian farmers harvest to all End-Users over the world. By this, we are able to decrease the price and make available this extra-expensive Spice for those could not buy it because of high prices.
