The main stages of saffron export
Saffron export from Iran can be done in several ways. Air travel is the best. Of course, saffron can also be exported by ship, and some people think that exporting saffron by ship is very economical, but it is not worth it at all.
Export of saffron, like other goods, has its own stages. The main stages of saffron export in Iran are as follows:
- Suitable marketing to find reliable customers
- Buying high-quality saffron
- Getting required standards for exporting the saffron
- Doing the required paperwork in customs and sending the saffron to the destination country
There are requirements to begin saffron export. The most basic requirement is complete familiarity with this valuable plant. Since saffron is the most expensive spice in the world, there are many cheaters in this trade.
In order not to fall into the trap of these deceivers, you should be completely familiar with this plant. In the following, we will give a brief explanation about saffron shape.
Saffron is a plant with a purple flower with 6 beautiful petals that protect 3 red stigmas. These three red stigmas are the same delicious substance that has a lot of color and aroma and is prepared with a lot of effort.
Another requirement is to know the types of Iranian saffron. There are 5 different types of saffron, each of which has different properties and characteristics.
Negin saffron has the highest price and Konj or white saffron has the lowest price among different types of saffron.
In the following, we will review different types of Iranian saffron.
Negin saffron has only red parts of the saffron stigma and no yellow or white is included in it. Of course, Negin saffron itself is divided into several quality grades. The larger the stigma and stem of saffron and the less broken the stigmas, the higher the value.
If we compare Negin saffron cream with ordinary Pushal saffron cream, we will know that they are very similar to each other. But in terms of thickness, they are different, and ordinary Pushal saffron is more delicate than Negin saffron. Negin saffron is very bulky in terms of physical appearance and has a very beautiful appearance.
Sargol saffron is usually prepared in packages of one gram or two grams etc. for daily consumption and is prepared from the beginning of the stigma of the saffron head. Sargol saffron has high coloring power and pure aroma and taste.
In Sargol saffron, there is no yellow part, and only the stigma part of the same cut string is available in a completely separate and clean form. Also, this type of saffron has more crumbs and breaks compared to other types of saffron.
Pushal saffron is saffron that has red stigmas with some cream (between three and five millimeters). Production of this type of saffron is at the beginning of the harvest season. Also, this flower has more survival than other saffron flowers because it has some cream along with its stigmas. Normally, for every 100 kilos of saffron flowers, approximately one kilo of saffron is produced.
This type of saffron has a higher coloring power compared to Dasteh saffron because it has more stigmas than Dasteh saffron. Some people use it because the stigma is attached to the cream in Pushal saffron and the possibility of cheating in saffron is reduced and it is easier to distinguish whether it is genuine or not.
Dasteh Saffron (Bunch in English)
Among the different types and varieties of saffron, bunch saffron or Dasteh saffron is the main and basic type of saffron. When the farmers pick the strands of saffron they put them together and then dry all the saffron strands (combination of root and cream). Generally, the cream part is between 3 to 5 mm, and depending on the quality of saffron, the stigma part may be longer or shorter.
Konj or white saffron
After the rhizome is removed from the bunch, the root or white part, which in Iran is called the Konj or white saffron, remains; This part has more aroma, but the red part of saffron has more valuable ingredients.
