Description

Family Grown, Sustainably Farmed Saffron from Herat Afghanistan.

Our Mission:

Empowering Afghan women and family farmers by bringing their authentic saffron to US markets, and empowering their children by investing in their local schools.

What Is Saffron?
Saffron is the world's most expensive spice, it is called Red Gold in some countries too. There are different varieties of Saffron, but this Saffron is Afghan Poushali Negin Grade A Saffron. Chefs and cookers love ours because of its thicker and dark red filaments.

Saffron threads are the stigmas of the Crocus Sativus Linnaeus. Because of saffron health benefits, its price, and aromatic qualities, it is called “Queen of Spices,” and in Afghanistan, it is called, “Red Gold.” Its ethereal flavor makes a perfect enrichment for savory and sweetenedplates. It takes 225,000 stigmas (or 75,000 blossoms) to make a pound of saffron. It comes from the internal of the amethyst-colored saffron crocus and must be hand-harvested due to its delicateness.

Who We are?

We are a group of family farmers,from Herat Afghanistan, who have been cultivating saffron “Queen of Spices” in the past seven years. We import our family’s and other family farmers’ saffron to United States.
Heray Spice Team is a group of three US Army linguists, and their families, who served the Army in Afghanistan. On 2014 we immigrated to Chicago; after three years of being in US we are looking for an opportunity to “replace weapons with pens” by importing natural Afghan saffron to United States and building schools for Afghan children.
20% of our company income is used to build schools for Afghan Children. These are the three schools that we are currently covering: PashtoonZarghoon Elementary School, Chongar Elementary School, and Imam Shishnoor High School.

Our saffron is artistically grown, and hand-harvested in rural areas of Afghanistan. It is cultivated for a living, and educating children.


Why Afghanistan Saffron?

The Afghanistan Climate is the best for growing saffron. It is warm.dry, windy, and semiarid; this is the climate that saffron best grow. In the last three years, the International Taste and Quality Institute of Brussels awarded Afghan saffron the first high quality saffron among 30 competing regions.
According to officials, if good care is taken, the saffron flower in Afghanistan produces up to 14 leaves, while saffron from Spain and other countries can produce up to 5 leaves in one plant.
Our saffron is tasted according to ISO 3632-2 with color strength (crocin): 264. Currently we have the finest and highest quality saffron in US market. The average market saffron coloring is 110.
