Afghan Saffron, one of the world’s leading commercial single-source saffron producers and pioneers of organic saffron cultivation in Afghanistan, was founded in 2001 by Ghaffar Hamidzay.

Based in Herat, in the western part of Afghanistan bordering Iran, the saffron plantation is nestled in the fertile valley of the Hari River and overlooked by the stunning Paropamisus Mountains. These outstanding areas of natural beauty create the ideal environment for the saffron crocus flower to flourish, thereby creating a unique and incomparable product.

Furthermore, Afghan Saffron is steadfast in their respect for their native lands and follows a strict, supervised, chemical-free saffron production. This ensures that their product is 100% organic, single-source and of the highest quality and that they safeguard nearby crops and local flora and fauna for future generations.
