From Opium to saffron
Where once grew opium plants, today a self-governing and independent women’s collective cultivates this precious saffron according to old traditions and by a lot of manual work. Conflictfood’s saffron comes from the province of Herat in Western Afghanistan. The entire region is also referred to as the “cradle of saffron” and is one of the best cultivation areas in the world.
The very taste of peace!
