The Company

Our goal

To harness the most advanced technology for the
development of automatic grow containers that are
remotely managed in order to ensure a large
supply of quality saffron throughout the year.


Manual, intensive and expensive labor
Saffron production is a complex, low-yield process
Saffron is a sensitive plant hat requires specific environmental conditions for growing
For these reasons, some dealers in the field estimate that up to 60% of the market is fake product!
Approximately one thousand flowers are needed to produce 1 gram of saffron, hence its nickname ‘red gold’.The price per one gram of genuine quality saffron ranges between $30-50. In other words, the end consumer buys 0.3 gram at $26 or more.
Saffron-Tech SOLUTION

Saffron-Tech provides controlled, remotely managed solutions for the cultivation of top quality saffron that can be produced year round.
