 Why do countries import saffron from Iran?

Due to Iran's suitable climate for saffron cultivation and appropriate height of agricultural land, this valuable plant can be cultivated in most regions of Iran.
Suitable climatic conditions along with the high expertise and experience of Iranian farmers who have cultivated saffron for thousands of years have provided the conditions for the production of the best saffron in the world.
In different regions, Iranian saffron is used for different purposes.
