Afghanistan saffron once again ranked first globally

KABUL: The Afghan saffron products once again were ranked first in terms of quality by the International European Union Institute for Spices Studies (EUISS) based in Belgium’s Brussels, the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock said in a statement Tuesday. “The Afghan saffron or Red Gold Company, in terms of quality products won the first position for the 9th time in the International European Union for Spices Studies in Brussels of Belgium in 2024,” the statement said. The International Institute of Taste of the European Union, based in Brussels Belgium, is a world-renowned international body for determining the taste and quality of food products. Notably, 90 to 95 percent of saffron is grown in the country’s western Herat province, with the authorities saying the plant’s products have recently been increased. Afghanistan, with its good climate, is suitable for growing and harvesting better saffron crops, and according to experts, if this plant is cultivated properly, its yields will increase up to three times compared to other countries. Demand for saffron in world markets is increasing. The Kabul Times
