Iran exported more than 85 tons of saffron worth over 3.68 trillion rials (about $98 million) during the 10 months to January 19, according to the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration. Germany, Spain, the UK, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Japan, Sweden, France, the UAE, the Philippines, Canada, Poland, Norway, New Zealand and the Netherlands were the main export destinations, Eranico reported.  “Different figures, ranging from 310 to 360 tons, have been released for this year’s saffron production,” Gholamreza Miri, the deputy head of Iranian National Saffron Council, was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency. Last year’s production stood at over 350 tons, indicating a 25% rise year-on-year, of which about 130 tons were exported. Iran is the world’s biggest saffron producer and accounts for more than 93% of the global production. Close to 95% of the Iranian saffron are grown in the two provinces of South Khorasan and Khorasan Razavi in northeastern Iran.
