This beautiful Afghan saffron is imported by a new company, Rumi Spice, trying to help their farm partners to disrupt the poppy trade by growing saffron crocus.  It is worth 6 times the poppy trade and is not against the law or their religion. The company was founded by American veterans and is now the biggest employer of women workers in Afghanistan.
