Saffron on the way!
It is called the red gold, consists of stamens from the plant saffron-crocus, and is one of the world's finest spices. We have now bought two kilos in Afghanistan together with Karlsen's Spices, and the package is on its way to Denmark.
Afghanistan produces some of the world's finest saffron and the one we have bought is a high-quality saffron, which we are very much looking forward to presenting to Danish customers.
Saffron exports create jobs and income for both farmers and women, who are often responsible for production itself. And then it is a good alternative to the harmful opium production.
This is the Danish organisation Dacaar that has helped farmers in the Saffron Association of Barnabad to grow saffron, and we have bought through the company Afghanistan Saffron Company certified and professional.
It's a good story in every way.
