About this product

For centuries saffron has held as one of the world's most precious spices for its vibrant color and subtly fragrant threads. Sourced from the crocus sativus, each flower only yields three fragrant and flavorful threads (stigmas).

This saffron was grown by Raqib Mushtaq on his family's 3.75-acre farm in the historic saffron district of Pampore, where they have been growing saffron for as far back as his grandparents can remember. Brought to the Valley by Persian traders in the 12th century AD, Kashmiri saffron's reputation as being the pinnacle of flavor and aroma precedes it. One whiff of Raqib's harvest and you'll know it was all true!

About the brand

Diaspora Co. was founded by 23-year-old Sana in the fall of 2017 with just one spice - Pragati Turmeric - after learning about the inefficiencies and poor economics for farmers in the spice trade. Today, Diaspora Co. sources over 30 single origin spices from 150 farms across India and Sri Lanka, while paying their farm partners an average of 6x above the commodity price. In a system where fair trade is a mere 15% premium, Diaspora Co. works to pay their farm partners a fair living wage to set the foundation of building climate resilience and more delicious food systems.
