We are excited to share with you our newest spice to hit the shelves, Rumi Saffron. Not only is the Saffron high quality, so is the company and their mission-Spice for Peace. Rumi Saffron partners with Afghan farmers to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to their customers. Started by a team of US military veterans, Rumi sources from local Afghan farms and employs more than 1900 women in Herat, Afghanistan to hand-harvest the delicate crimson stigmas of the flowers. Did you know that it takes about 75,000 flowers or 225,000 stigma to produce one pound of Saffron. It’s no surprise that one of Saffron’s nicknames is Red Gold!
