Artisanal Afghan Saffron | Cultivating Peace

Rumi Spice was founded by military vets on a mission to improve the Afghan economy by opening them and their agricultural production to US by helping them with compliance and also connecting them with Michelin star chefs and top retail chains across the country.

Rumi, currently focuses on partnering with Afghan farmers to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to customers around the world. We started with 11 farmers and now partner with over 300. We are also proud to be the largest private employer of women in Afghanistan at over 1,900 women as of January 2018.

We offer a wide variety of Saffron-forward products such as Spice Blends, Green Tea, Saffron infused vegan gems and raw saffron itself – meeting ISO international Category I standards.

Rumi saffron now graces the tables and kitchens of The French Laundry, Daniel, Le Bernardin, Bouley, and the Culinary Institute of America. Our retail stores include Dean & Deluca, Whole Foods, and Central Markets. You can skim our website or read some of the latest articles that came out on us in the New York Times and Food & Wine. Rumi aired on Shark Tank May 5 and received an offer from Mark Cuban.
