Known as one of the most expensive spices in the world, there's much about saffron that Western cultures often misunderstand. This week on Beyond the Shelf, we spoke with the CEO & Co-Founder of Heray Spice, Mohammad Salehi. In this episode, Mohammad shared with us how their business is bringing equity to Afghani farmers through promoting sustainable farming practices as well as helping to de-mystify American's knowledge of saffron. They also gave us some much-needed insight into the global saffron market, and the variety of quality that can be found around the world.
