Afghan Saffron Increase In Exports

Tags:


The price of Afghanistan’s saffron has increased in local because exports of the spice to international markets have seen a dramatic increase, a local investor said.

According to officials, one of the main reasons for the increase in saffron exports is the introduction of air corridors between Afghanistan and India, as well as China and Turkey.

“The hike in the saffron prices is because of an increase in the exports of the spice,” said Nasir Azimi, member of the union.

Afghanistan exported at least 16 tons of saffron to various destinations in less than a year, said Akbar Rustami, a spokesman for Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock.

“Of the 16 tons of saffron in 1397 (March 2018 to March 2019), at least 90 percent of it has been exported to various countries,” Rustami said. “This show that Afghanistan’s saffron has a good place in the regional and international markets.”
