Ninety-five percent of the world’s saffron comes from Iran. It has traditionally been grown in Khorasan, an area (about the size of England) in the north-east of Iran with ideal soil and climate conditions for the crop. Saffron is a valuable spice with origins in Zagros Mountains area in “Mede” era. Saffron which takes a lot of labor to produce, is actually a very small part of the plant Crocus Sativus Lineas and everything about it is really interesting.
Every day during the one-month harvest season that starts around mid-October more than four hundred thousand people in southern Khorasan get up before dawn to go to the fields and pick the beautiful delicate lilac flowers that have bloomed overnight. They must be picked before being exposed to too much sunshine. The flowers are then carried in wicker baskets to the processing areas where the stigmas are patiently removed by hand.
The next step is to gently toast the stigmas in order to dry them before they are tested, sorted, packed and sealed, insuring that the full, unique and exquisite flavor, aroma and color of this “vegetable gold” reaches the consumer.

The chemical constituents crocine (responsible for the color) and picrocrocin and saffrranal (responsible for the taste and aroma) are regularly tested and measured in all the saffron we process, so that we can guarantee that the contents of every package leaving our warehouses meet the specified criteria. In addition, all our saffron is meticulously tested and controlled for absolute purity and hygiene.
The purity, quality and hygiene desired and expected by the consumer of this precious product are not just a matter of control at Novin Saffron company but the policy, responsibility and plan of the management and personnel of all the departments. The product traceability system we employ enables us to be completely answerable to you. A reference number is recorded on all packaging, consignment documents, etc. for each individual order so that all the relevant information such as the origin of the saffron, test results and names of personnel responsible is available.
