This year is the best of recent years. The rains that have fallen in the area of ​​Kozani recently create the best conditions for the spots of the yolk to be large, a fact which in turn will contribute to the increase of the total weight of the production.

The Kozani saffron harvest season has been going on for a week now, with hundreds of growers and their families in the fields, collecting their purple flowers one by one.

As the president of the cooperative, Vassilis Mitsopoulos, points out, although the trade in China started encouragingly with the first shipment of packaged quantity for specialized shops selling aromatic plants, so far there is no progress, a fact that the president of the cooperative attributes to the traditional trade cooperation between China and Iran , which is one of the leading saffron production forces reaching 400 tons per year.

In recent years, the use of Kozani saffron in gastronomy is flourishing, since internationally recognized chefs have included the famous spice in their delicious creations.
