Saffron prices in Riyadh
In this year (2021), saffron prices in Riyadh did not change much compared to last year because saffron is exported from Iran and Iran is the largest producer of saffron in the world.
According to statistics, almost 90% of the world’s saffron is produced in Iran. Since our company is located in Iran, you can order as much saffron as you want and there are no limitation.
Saffron shops in Riyadh
Most of the time, saffron shops in Riyadh sell saffron more expensively than in other Arab countries. The reason for this high price is that saffron cannot be sent directly to Saudi Arabia to send it from Iran.
Therefore, most companies export their saffron to Saudi Arabia through other countries such as the UAE and Kuwait and other neighboring countries.
Riyadh saffron is available in different types, but as mentioned above, it is not possible to send saffron from Iran to Saudi Arabia, but due to the good relations between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, we can send our saffron first to Kuwait and then to Saudi Arabia.
It is also not possible to send money from Saudi Arabia to Iran, but you can do it from Kuwait. With this method, the cost of saffron becomes a little more expensive, but it is a very safe method for Iranian saffron customers.
We have a representative in Kuwait who delivers our saffron and then sends it to Saudi Arabia. In fact, you buy saffron from Kuwait.
