ORGANIC GREEK RED SAFFRON (Krokos Kozanis)
A precious spice and the best saffron quality in the world, that has significant antioxidant properties, contributing to good health and well-being, while it enhances the taste and lends its appealing color to many dishes, desserts and beverages. New researches converge to the conclusion that the saffron stigmas possess strong antioxidant properties that can neutralize free radicals, whereas they can also improve brain function and especially the memory.
Earth’s gold, nature’s most precious plant, the saffron flower, else known as the Krokos flower. Growing in Kozani, North Greece, and giving its name to the land where it comes from, the Krokos village. A unique flower with a beautiful story to tell. Krokos blossoms only once a year, every October, for barely two weeks, creating a purple magic carpet as far as the eye can see. The flowers are harvested daily, right after the morning dew has evaporated, and saffron antioxidants are at their peak. After all the flowers have been collected, the fields look empty, but by dawn, the Krokos blooms once again, blanketing the fields in beautiful purple flowers. Petals are separated by hand from the saffron stigmas and stamens, immediately after being picked, followed by stigmas’ drying process, ensuring that the saffron is at its highest potency. A hundred and fifty thousand blooms hand-picked by the villagers during the harvest, yield only one kilo of Krokos stigmas. A painstaking process, making saffron more valuable than gold itself.
In 1971 the greek saffron(Krokos Kozanis) growers formed the Cooperative de Safran; since then, the cooperative has had the exclusive responsibility of harvesting, sorting, processing, packaging and trading the whole Krokos (saffron) production. As of 1998, Greek Red Saffron (Krokos Kozanis) has entered the “Register of protected designations of origin” (PDO). Krocus Kozanis Products S.A., established in 2007, is a joint venture between the Cooperative de Saffran of Kozani [www.safran.gr] and the Greek skincare brand KORRES, introducing an Organic Herbal Tea Collection with Krokos Kozanis (saffron), a ‘first’ for the international food & drink market.
