Rumi Spice Saffron


Rumi Spice was founded by a group of US military veterans partnered with Afghan farmers. Their promise is the highest quality saffron for a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan.  The saffron comes from sustainably farmed rural farmers.  Rumi Spice profits are reinvested to build the agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure necessary to lay a foundation for peace and prosperity.  The saffron is known as red gold, and comes hand harvested directly from Afghan farmers.  In one year they have doubled saffron production and have been able to employ 75 Afghan women in their processing plant in Herat, Afghanistan.




As a chef, I have sampled many different saffron types, and Afghan saffron from Rumi Spice is some of the best that I have ever found. This saffron is of the highest quality with subtle nuanced flavors that are ideal for cooking Bouillabaisse and Tagines. This saffron is sustainably farmed and sourced directly so it is a product that is both delicious and good for farmers and the planet.
