6000 packages Safran to Irma
Two large boxes have arrived (see at the bottom) with 6000 bags with 0.5 g of Safran in each to the Danish retailer Irma in good cooperation with Karlsen's spices. It is our first "private label" production - specially packed bags so they can fit into the special sustainable spice packaging in Irma.
By moving bags, stickers and packing to Afghanistan we create even more income and more jobs. This is needed in Afghanistan - especially right now where international troops leave the country. It creates uncertainty and the large turnover and income created by the foreign presence disappears.
One of those who have been working in the safran production is Shah Mohammad in 43 years. He had his own business, but went bankrupt during Covid-19 and has now a job at Afghanistan Saffron Company, which we buy our Safran from. He weighs Safran and it provides income to the family. The work is not so physically hard, and it has therefore also helped with the back problems he had previously.
It is now we must trade with Afghanistan.
Safran packages directly from Afghanistan.
