The need to import a top-of-the-range product arises from
the awareness that there is a world market, in which about 300 tons of saffron
are consumed per year (approx. 3 for the Italian market), and at the same time
to realize that such a valuable product and fascinating, is offered to the
consumer without any guarantee on the quality of the product purchased.
On the packages of saffron normally placed for sale, only the words saffron in pistils or saffron in powder appear, which in substance mean nothing. Qualifying the product is essential so that the consumer can have the correct information about what he buys.
Simorgh mainly imports and distributes the 1st degree, usually marked by the triple A (AAA) which indicates a category above the 1st called excellent. Saffron is certified for grades from 1 to 4 where 1 is the most valuable category.
Simorgh also imports niche products such as the Super Negin “First flower” which, in addition to being of exceptional quality, has characteristics of absolute superiority.
The saffron imported from Simorgh is of the highest quality.
Our musts are the Negin “all red 1st grade AAA” and the Top
Grade 1st grade AAA powder, as well as the “First flower” Super Negin. We also import quality saffron for all
consumer needs from food-industrial to pharmaceutical.
Simorgh also has the cultivation of a land of 28.5 hectares, certified organic, which produces about 200 kg per year of organic saffron, including a part of 1st grade AAA. Our prices are particularly advantageous because the direct collaboration with the cooperative allows us to have a direct line between Iran and Italy without any mediation.
