Saffron Price and type of saffron:

The type of saffron can have a great effect on the saffron price. Super Negin Saffron, Negin, Sargol, Pushal, and Daste (dokhtar pich) are all names of saffron models, but due to the coloring power and appearance of saffron, these models are different, here is a complete explanation about the differences between saffron types.

The effect saffron model on saffron price

The price of Super Negin saffron is higher than other models. This is due to the high coloring power and coarse appearance. The difference between the price of Super Negin saffron as the best model and Daste saffron as ordinary saffron can even be doubled.

Also, the price of other types of saffron is usually between the price of Super Negin saffron and Daste saffron.

Packing and saffron price:

From the point of view of each company, the relationship between the saffron price and its packing is different. That is, the more stylish, beautiful, and durable the packing, the higher the saffron price. But in general, the more saffron is divided into smaller packages and the better the quality of the packing model, the higher its price. In our opinion, this division is into two modes: under 100 grams and above 100 grams.

Packing under 100 grams:

One of the most common packages under 100 grams is 1 gram packing saffron, followed by weights of 2 grams, 5 , 10 , 20 , and 50 grams. Also, weights of 0.5 grams and 3 grams are more limited in the Iranian market.

Packing above 100 grams:

Packing above 100 grams is usually used for commercial purposes. For weight above 100 grams, the best option is metal khatam cans that Top Gem saffron uses this model of containers to carry saffron. Metal khatam cans have high strength and are rarely damaged during transportation.

But what is the effect of the type of packing on the saffron cost?

For example, 1 gram saffron at the one-gram pack, become 5 dollars per gram, and 100 gram saffron at the 100-gram pack, become 2 dollars per gram. It can have a difference of about 250%. Of course, this was just an example to make you more familiar with the effect of packing size on the saffron price.

Also, it should not be forgotten that the number of orders can have a great impact on the saffron cost. For example, ordering 100 one-gram packages is very different from 1000 one-gram packages in terms of price. You can contact us for advice on this issue.

Saffron price in different countries of the world:

One of the factors that have a great impact on the saffron price is which country you buy saffron from, simply! The farther away from the country from which you cater saffron is from the main saffron producing countries, the more you have to pay for saffron and its possible to get less quality!

Well, you might ask yourself why?

This is because those who buy saffron from the main saffron-producing countries only sell this product for trade and this is clear that trade is not possible without profit. For example, they buy saffron from Iran, pay a lot of money for transportation, storage, marketing, possibly repacking, taxes, customs duties, etc.

As a result, the saffron price is more expensive for them and they have to sell it more expensive, or if they want to compete with the main producers of this product for the saffron price, they have to sell a low-quality gross product. So, it is better to buy saffron from the main saffron producing countries.

World saffron production:

Iran is in the first place with more than 95% of saffron production, followed by India, Morocco, Italy, Spain, Greece, etc. Iran has the lowest price and best quality among saffron producing countries.

For example, the saffron price in Italy is 25,000 euros per kilogram, which is almost 16 times the saffron price in Iran.

Well, you may be wondering what is the reason for this strange price difference? Is the quality of Iranian saffron lower?

It is very clear that this is not the case at all, and the main reason for this difference only goes back to the production costs of saffron between Iran and a country like Italy. As the saffron price in Iran is lower, the production costs of this product such as labor, irrigation, planting, holding and harvesting, etc. are lower.

Well, this is a question you are probably curious to know.

That Saffron cultivation is very common in these provinces! And the city of Mashhad in Khorasan Razavi is the center of Iranian saffron so that almost 70% of Iranian saffron is exported to the whole world from these three provinces.
