More than 15 tons of saffron have been exported from Iran since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 20), which shows a 40% year-on-year decline, the deputy head of Iran’s National Saffron Council said recently.
“Iran’s saffron export destinations are struggling with the novel coronavirus just like us. The international markets are in doldrums and demand for this Persian delicacy has fallen. As a result, saffron prices have dropped as well,” Gholamreza Miri was also quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
The official told Young Journalists Club that Iran exported 251 tons of saffron during the last fiscal year that ended on March 19, 2020, registering no significant change compared to the year before.
