AT A GLANCE…
In 1971 the greek saffron growers formed the Cooperative de Safran; since then, the cooperative has had the exclusive responsibility of harvesting, sorting, processing, packaging and trading the whole krocus production.
Although about 20 species of saffron are native to Greek flora, nowadays Crocus sativus is the only species being cultivated, in the rural area outside the city of Kozani, in northern Greece.
The krocusflowercanusuallygrowashighas 10-12 cmabovetheground.
About 150.000 krocus flowers are required for a kilogram of the final product, which consists of the flower’s dried stigmas.
30.000 krocus flowers per day is the quantity the fastest saffron gatherer can collect.
Saffron types are graded by quality according to laboratory measurements of such characteristics as crocin (colour), picrocrocin (taste) and safranal (flavour) content. Greek Red Saffron, a pure productof the Greek agriculture, is considered the best in the world.
It has a coloring strength of 256, verified by laboratory reports, which is 66 points higher than the minimum international standard for all saffron.
As of 1998, Greek Red Saffron has entered the “Register of protected designations of origin”.
The cultivation of krocus goes back as far as at least 3,000 years, as in Minoan Crete the beautiful flower of krocus was a symbol of the Great Goddess of Nature, and its harvesting was always carried out in a ceremonious manner. The main use of saffron in antiquity was medicinal and Hippocrates, the "father of Medicine", would recommend it for the care of old and recent wounds and the treatment of various diseases. In his treatise “De Materia Medica”, the famous Greek pharmaco-botanist Dioskurides, noted that saffron possesses digestive, diuretic, emollient and aphrodisiac properties and, when mixed with sweet wine, can prevent alcohol intoxication. Several centuries later, in the Byzantine times, krocus started being used in cooking. It quickly won the reputation it even nowadays enjoys: that of a valuable and noble spice that lends its distinctive aroma, colour and taste to a variety of foods, from fish soups, sauces and pasta to breads, biscuits and sweets
