We supply our Iranian saffron in two ways: first, we produce it ourselves, and second, we buy from the known farmers that we have regular supervision over their farmland. We supply all kinds of saffron. Any type of saffron you want is available in our company in the finest quality. But our mission is to produce and supply superior Negin saffron.


Producing saffron in most cases is non-standard and is done without observing the health principles.

Furthermore we are one of few Iranian wholesale saffron and Iranian saffron producers which produce organic saffron but unfortunately due the united states of America's sanctions opposed to our country the international Organic auditing companies are not able to audit and grant the organic certification to our company.

What is organic agriculture?

(Organic, Natural) is a form of agriculture that does not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones and genetic manipulation in the production and processing of its products, and all processes of soil enhancement, planting and harvesting using natural inputs (such as biofertilizer, Composts, beneficial insects, efficient microorganisms (EM)

We mainly use non-chemical methods such as biological control, mechanical traps, choke and steam, flood irrigation to control pests, insidious animals and diseases.

Due to the low supply and high demand most of the saffron producers prefer to cultivate conventional saffron.

Through our ongoing monitoring of our saffron farmland, we always strive to provide pure and organic saffron in bulk and retail boxes- ( gift boxes) saffron, free from contamination and impurities when purchasing saffron from farmers.

Iranian Wholesale saffron and bulk saffron sellers are often without proper equipment to test and sampling the saffron to check the standards issues and saffron wholesalers usually buy saffron from the farmers with only checking the saffron physical appearance .

saffron wholesaler

There is a limited number of Persian Saffron Company in which produces Iranian saffron from cultivating to processing and packing.


However, there are uncountable saffron wholesaler businesses all around the country. Some of wholesaler saffron businesses have very close relation with small farms, those saffron wholesalers have necessary saffron cultivating information to help farms for better efficiency and productivity.


Wholesale saffron business travels to regions and villages with many small farms in which they are lacking useful informational for yelling very demanding saffron.


Iranian saffron wholesale company

Most farmers need essential information to produce expensive and very demanding classified saffron. These wholesale saffron businesses are also a source of a strong saffron base (saffron onion). There are many small farms when saffron bases multiply in area, the density and capacity of the limited property area cannot give efficient space for productivity growth, therefore the farms prefer to sell their saffron bases to the saffron wholesaler.


Saffron wholesaler store these saffron bases (onion) for the cultivation season and sell them to farmers who are cultivating the first time or have the weak saffron bases.


Wholesale saffron companies monitor the whole cultivation process and give farmers extensive advice for growing up high-quality saffron.


Soon after saffron complete grownup with yelling flowers there are two options for farmers to decide, either they hand pick the flowers and process to dry saffron and make it ready to sell or like most of them, they sell flowers to saffron wholesaler and saffron wholesale business organization will process and dry saffron in very knowledgeable Way which results in super NEGIN luxury expensive dried saffron ready to use.


Within two months saffron gives many flowers ready to pick when all procedures of saffron processing and drying is done the huge supply happens.


This is the season that big wholesaler buys and stock Saffron for whole one year till the next saffron harvesting.


These wholesaler saffron business together with saffron companies and official saffron commodity market defines the saffron price in all saffron classifications. However, due to huge saffron production in IRAN (near 500 tons) this identifying price, have tangible influence in the world saffron price.


Consequently, saffron wholesaler and the saffron company will control the saffron price in one year until the next harvesting season.


Wholesale saffron Exports in recent years is developed with very up-to-date and very charming gift boxes and big bulk wholesale saffron boxes.


Despite China and India large share of agriculture export in world market, Persian saffron or Iranian saffron among Iran agricultural industry has very considerable volume of agriculture products share in world.


Unfortunately, countries like India and China had set unfair high volume of import tariffs (import tax) to the Iranian saffron wholesale, thus saffron companies in these countries has to loop law with pricy action of taking Iranian saffron to countries like Afghanistan or Hong Kong to reexport to their countries due to elimination of the saffron wholesale custom tariff (import tax) in these countries and use the tariff exemption.


Heavy import tariffs have caused major Iranian saffron wholesale to India and China through the UAE by smuggling into these countries, which on the other hand, profits from these illegal exports goes to the pockets of Emirate's exporters, however if Iran could have increased the international communication and interactions relation with all countries to open the hindering doors of heavy tariff addressing Iranian wholesale saffron.


Positive negotiations could open the exporting Iranian saffron path either in bulk wholesale saffron or retail gift boxes to the worlds.


Research shows approximately 64% of Persian saffron was shipped in the 10-30g boxes as a wholesale saffron export bulk package from Iran in the first 10 months of this year to Emirates and Spain markets. China, Saudi Arabia, India, Hong Kong, Italy, Sweden, Germany, and Taiwan were also the other major markets for this Iranian export product.


In total, 90 percent of the country's largest saffron exports were shipped to six markets in the UAE, Spain, China, Saudi Arabia, India, and Hong Kong as a wholesale saffron .


One of the concerns of saffron companies and saffron wholesalers in IRAN which they are involved in the export of saffron wholesale is the purchase of bulk saffron at an underpriced by the other countries in wholesale saffron by companies which make their own brand and boxing although saffron inside the box belong to Iran, in addition they might re-exported Iranian saffron as Spanish saffron, Indian saffron or Afghanistan saffron in some cases make also fake saffron by mixing pure natural Iranian saffron with colored saffron cream for more illegitimate benefit .


saffron wholesale Bulk price is lower than saffron retail boxes. Bulk saffron along with packed saffron in Iran is the saffron which has the highest quality produced with very natural pure saffron.


To buy bulk or packed saffron from saffron wholesaler or saffron companies just search for real saffron first hand saffron producer company, good news is fortunately in recent years all provinces in Iran produce saffron some of provinces farmlands are producing even better quality comparing Khorasan province but still Khorasan is the largest producer of saffron in Iran, which all wholesale saffron companies buy their saffron from this area but year by year this trend is shifting to other provinces especially to Tehran. The saffron produced in this area (Tehran) has very high quality but not the only supplier of saffron.


Most saffron wholesale businesses are in Tehran and Khorasan considering the history of business ethics in Tehran, you might find better expert companies with more trust worthy which comply with ethics in Tehran, as result wholesale saffron companies can easily buy their required saffron and export them to other countries. Persian saffron is the most consuming saffron, due to its high quality and due to the recently develop packing process along with fair price.


Researches show that the transition from wholesale saffron to retail in the short term is feasible by branding and government help to ameliorate the business negotiation with highly densely populated countries to lower the import saffron tariff which may result to lower price available for every one comparing other countries saffron production. However, this long-term transition is consistent with the wholesale saffron or retail price decline. In other words, the sensitivity of retail prices is not the same as the long-term decline in saffron wholesale prices. Given the fact that there are opportunities to increase the margin of the market and profit from intermediaries, it is suggested that the supportive policies increase the bargaining power of the producers, but pricing policies now are The reason for unfair price which is harmful to long term saffron export, since the profit earned by saffron wholesalers but not by the farmer labors.


The relationship between the wholesale saffron companies and the international marketing agents by which the product reaches the consumers from the hands of the saffron companies is identified as the market path. The tracing of these paths is related to product transfers, and the route that leads the major part of the product to the market. Major routes of saffron international marketing are in major cities producing saffron in Iran provinces.


According to the fact that, the major part of dry saffron is sold to the cities wholesale saffron market and local saffron companies by saffron farmers, and finally saffron wholesalers buy it from the market, in Tehran and other cities, according to the previous order has been explained. Retailers in Tehran and other cities usually produce saffron from three sources: either directly from farmland in the production areas, from wholesale saffron businesses in other regions and Tehran, or big companies produce saffron, in packaging and Standard certified process. saffron Packaging companies also buy saffron in bulk from saffron wholesalers in all saffron producing provinces, like Tehran or other cities, and export them in a standardized way for export which will be ready to be exported in gift box or bulk with the saffron wholesale exporter.


In the saffron market, there are brokers who directly or illegally export saffron in bulk outside the country (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Iraq) or, according to previous explanation, wholesale saffron business of Mashhad, or in some other cities are sold through these agents who are illegally export unstandardized quality saffron from the country illegally. In general, in the current market system, saffron producing farmlands and companies which are produce standard saffron in the condition of benefit and good motivation, but due to product movement from inappropriate distribution channels, the producer's benefits are minimized and, on the other hand, the domestic consumer buy the saffron with the maximum unfair price.


This trend continues while foreign saffron wholesale companies get Iran's product at less than half the world market price due to fact that the saffron, they are buying is not in the standard quality.

saffron wholesale companies’ in Iran which are producing high standard benefits are very low, for the cost of grading, packaging, and advertising which is more than the price of the main product(saffron) and they earn a small income from the sale of the final production. This lack of coordination due to the farmland union and government coordination along with mall saffron wholesale businesses coherent organized selling process distribution, due to the lack of knowledge of the saffron quality and high price of testing machinery , the market situation and the price fluctuations plus the misinformation on supply and demand changes are the results of inorganized informing policy in the whole world markets.

Maybe you are one of those saffron importers who are going to buy premium quality saffron but you have not found a reputable saffron wholesaler for buying saffron.

Wholesale saffron in Iran also has special requirements such as always have access to saffron so that whenever the buyer orders the saffron can timely supply heir saffron in large quantities.

If you are a buyer of saffron and you are going to buy wholesale saffron from Iran, you must first determine which saffron wholesaler is capable of supplying and selling the saffron. 

On the other hand, they should be able to offer saffron at the most reasonable price.  The saffron wholesalers have this feature who first are primarily saffron producers themselves, and second, they are attached to many farmers and make their saffron easily.

Wholesale Saffron Prices 

The price of saffron varies widely in different wholesale saffron.  The reason for this price difference is the quality of saffron and presence the intermediates.  If you buy saffron from saffron wholesaler who is also saffron producer, you will get the best saffron at the most reasonable price.

Another difference is the saffron packing.  Cheap saffron is often sold in delicate plastic containers, which may be done to reduce the price of saffron, but exposure of saffron to light can cause thermal and chemical reactions with the plastic that can eventually cause spice damage. 

The more expensive saffron usually comes in polycrystal, glass or metal containers, with a vacuum seal and in a dark box to prevent direct light.

The price of packed saffron In addition to the type and quality of the saffron depends on its packing.  The price of 1 gram of saffron packed in rectangular polycrystal containers is less than one gram of saffron in polycrystal jars.

The variety in packaging and the different qualities as well as the unstable price of saffron make it impossible to offer a price here.

Another reason for the saffron price uncertainty is competition.  In the saffron market, each saffron wholesaler has set a price for their saffron so that a lower price can attract customers, but the low price of saffron is not a reason for the quality of the saffron because it is likely that the saffron have been purchased from different parts of the country with different qualities. 

What are the characteristics of high-quality saffron?

Generally, the lower the amount of white parts in stigmas, the better the saffron.  The thickness of the saffron stigmas and the fact that the stigmas are smooth and without wave also make the saffron price higher.

Each type of saffron has its own characteristics and is classified into different grades of quality, for example, premium Negin saffron or premium Pushal saffron. The point is that the first class Pushal saffron contains white parts, but the first class Negin saffron is without white parts and is all red, so you should understand that the first class of saffron is not the only red saffron because depending on the type of saffron, there may be some white parts in the saffron in different kinds of saffron. 

The most important matters in the wholesale saffron is the uniformity of the saffron strands, meaning that all the quantity of saffron you buy should have the same quality and not be the mixture of several saffron with different quality.

most of the world's saffron is cultivated in the desert of Iran.

Saffron prepared for wholesale saffron with these titles also have the following characteristics. 

-The stigmas is tall and free from fractures.

-Its staining strength is above 2.

-It has a great aroma. 

These are some of the most important criteria for wholesale saffron, which every buyer should be careful about.

One of the important things to keep in mind when buying wholesale saffron is fresh or old.  Because as soon as the saffron is dried, it loses its flavor. If you are going to buy saffron at a reasonable price, contact the experts in this collection and choose and buy the best type of saffron.

Totally, in all types of saffron, saffron that has taller stigmas means that the saffron is not crushed and broken, has high coloring power and has a higher odor and higher quality.

The offered saffron varieties in Eyjan saffron company have high coloring power and have the least amount of whiteness at their kind so that the Negin and Sargol saffron strands are all red and without any whiteness.  

To improve the quality of saffron One of the things to consider is the saffron drying methods, Iranian saffron has high quality due to weather conditions.  But drying conditions and saffron storage also influence the quality of wholesale saffron.  So that non-compliance the standard principles will cause the saffron stigmas to be broken or darkened, and the stigmas to become stale and to reduce the smell of saffron.

The saffron of Eyjan saffron Company has high coloring power, aroma and bitter taste.

Eyjan Saffron Company In addition to that offers the high-quality, pure and firs class saffron to its customers, it is offered to you at a very reasonable and base price.

Because Eyjan Saffron is a saffron manufacturer, so it sells the wholesale saffron in Iran and other countries at a fair price.

Direct selling of saffron

We want to prove to everyone that farmers today are fully aware of all information and that they can do all the sale saffron and there is no need to a broker.

Saffron keeping condition
Since saffron fragrances can be evaporated after you are milled and the pharmacological and flavor effects are eliminated, you should keep the saffron away from light and moisture in glass containers.   Saffron doesn’t smell after it is dried until it is milled and moistened and its aroma is inhaled again.

As we mentioned before, we grow natural saffron. Natural saffron has a unique aroma and taste, and the effectiveness of natural saffron is far greater than that of ordinary saffron.

It should be noted that shipping is not free and the sample is shipped by International postal courier, which costs a maximum of 200 grams of net weight and a maximum of 500 grams of gross 150 Canadian dollars.

The ways of cheating in saffron and the methods of distinguish it

Purchasing saffron is one of those purchases that the customer must be very careful during the purchase not to buy fake saffron instead of original saffron especially as it is easy to do. Since saffron includes more material value than other agricultural products, rather than focusing on the brand or other appearance of the product, we need to learn how to distinguish the original saffron from the counterfeit. The reason that most of the customers are deceived is that the "safflower" has a similar shape to that of saffron, and some saffron wholesalers sell it to customers instead of the original saffron.

Some people are looking for low price and high quality, and in the saffron market,  some saffron wholesalers sell this product as first-class saffron at a lower price by mixing different types of saffron (for example, one kilo of Super Negin saffron with a few kilos of Sargol saffron).  While the audience sees it as saffron, the qualities are different.  This is the most hidden fraud in the sale of saffron and unfortunately it is very common. 

With one or two strands of Super Negin saffron, you can make a cup of saffron tea or syrup.  Note the difference in color strength, fragrance and taste.

Identifying the main saffron from the stigma of the saffron branch has some simple methods.  the tripartite branches of the stigma of the saffron ,the wider upper part of the stigmas and the lower part of it becomes thinner as it has some spicy flavor; if the saffron is sweet, it means that the business has added some salt or sugar to its weight. Of course, if the saffron strands is powdered, it is only detectable by laboratory devices. Others, in order to determine the quality of saffron, press a strand of it between the straw paper and the newspaper and call it saffron if the fat is left untouched.

Another way is to put some strands of saffron in the water and dissolve it.  If the yarn stays the same after the water is dyed, it is original saffron otherwise it will be fake saffron.

Although some families do not care about the originality or fakeness and the color they are looking for, it is important to know, including the chemical colors used in saffron coloring, are allergenic and carcinogenic that is in addition to economic damage.  There is also a health risk and a threat to consumer health. In general, those who sell these counterfeit products, their packing does not have the complete and correct specifications of the manufacturer. For this reason, it is often recommended that during the purchase of all the information mentioned in the package, including the full address of the factory, telephone number, manufacturing license number, trade name and registration, manufacturing or production series, production date and expiration date,  net weight, type and grade of saffron, standard mark, confirmation mark of the Ministry of Health.

So buy the best saffron directly from the manufacturer without any impurities and high quality and reasonable price by buying the major saffron from Eyjan Saffron company.

Increasing the volume of production and supply of saffron to the market has a major impact on the market of saffron.  The presence of different qualities of saffron in the market and the increase in supply and demand have led to more and more intermediaries and dealers of saffron entering the field and controlling the saffron market.

Iran is the largest exporter of saffron in the world with 90% share of saffron production.

Although some other countries produce saffron, but due to the lack of climatic conditions and other factors affecting the production and quality of saffron, they have not been able to produce saffron same as the quality of Iranian saffron.

Basically, climate change and geographical conditions affect the quality and quantity of plants, especially saffron, and plants grown in different parts of the world may have different substances and thus have different effects or different therapeutic values.  One of the substances in saffron that high levels of it causes toxicity of saffron is a substance called safranal, which is one of the main ingredients of saffron. Iranian saffron contains less percentage of safranal than saffron grown in different parts of the world, and this is one of the most important and the major advantages and differences between wholesale saffron from Iran and other countries. In fact, it can be said that the toxicity of Iranian saffron in large quantities is lower than non-Iranian varieties.

Given that 95% of the world's saffron is produced in Iran and Khorasan province, the whole world knows saffron by the name of Iranian saffron. 

The only saffron that has first rank in Iran is Qaenat city’s original saffron, which is harvested from the Red Gold Capital, Khorasan and has a relatively high price. The Eyjan saffron company’s farmland is located in this city.

Nowadays, Spain and the UAE buy wholesale saffron from Iran every year and supply it with their name in the world.

Since Spain packs the bulk Iranian saffron with its name and offers it to global markets, the price of saffron in Spain is much higher than the price of wholesale saffron in Iran.

By doing so, both the name of Iranian saffron will be damaged as the biggest competitor in the world and they will gain their profit. It will also reduce Iran's share in world markets.

For these reasons, it is important to know where to buy the first class saffron. The best thing to do when buying exported saffron is to buy saffron directly from the saffron manufacturer because the supplier of saffron is the farmer.

Countries like Spain, although does not contribute much to the production of saffron in the world, it has been able to be introduced in the world with major imports of Iranian saffron! Spain is the largest importer of Iranian saffron, which buys wholesale saffron from Iran in bulk and then packs and supplies it with its own name in international markets.

Why saffron is expensive?

Saffron contains several chemical components that are really expensive: picrocrocin, crocin and safranal.  They are the three main constituents or compounds responsible for the taste, color and smell of saffron. 

When we talk about the quality of saffron, we are technically talking about these three chemical components.  Saffron is intrinsically a valuable spice. Because saffron harvesting requires a lot of physical work, and the process of harvesting, along with the distinct taste, odor and color of saffron, has made it the most expensive spice in the world. It should be said that spices will be used in kitchens around the world as skin and textile color and will soon be widely used for medical purposes. Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. After that, vanilla is the most expensive spice. But what makes saffron so expensive? Purple flowers bloom only during the six-week period from End of September to first of December. Saffron has a dry stigma that is part of the flower material. In the process of preparation of saffron plant, stigma should be separated and dried. They are harvested at certain times of the day when there is high humidity in the air, as this can affect the quality of the saffron. It is said that sunlight can alter the chemical structure of saffron, so it is best to harvest saffron early in the morning. Saffron harvesting is done by hand and therefore, many workers are needed, so many workers must harvest 4 pounds of saffron. Of course, all this while the yield of saffron is really low, so for just one pound of saffron, you have to harvest 17,000,000 flowers manually.

The high price of saffron directly affects its growth. With the help of all the technologies and automation, the mechanical technology that is available cannot be used to remove or remove saffron or, if it is, very limited and not used. Flowers must be hand-picked at a specific time before dawn.

The saffron strands must be separated by hand. This is precisely manual work and requires highly skilled and experienced workforce. It has literally been more than an hour working for one gram of saffron. 

This means that the wages paid to workers in the field of saffron picking and wiping must be fair, or at least we all hope and think so.

After harvesting the flowers and roots are separated, the process of sorting and drying begins.  It also requires great precision and knowledge.  Every little detail is very important, temperature and light, keeping conditions, saffron packing (polycrystal, plastic,metal or glass), exposure to light after packing and most of the saffron drying process is very important for quality.
