In 1971 the greek saffron(Krokos Kozanis) growers formed the Cooperative de Safran; since then, the cooperative has had the exclusive responsibility of harvesting, sorting, processing, packaging and trading the whole Krokos (saffron) production.
As of 1998, Greek Red Saffron (Krokos Kozanis) has entered the “Register of protected designations of origin” (PDO). Krocus Kozanis Products S.A., established in 2007, is a joint venture between the Cooperative de Saffran of Kozani [www.safran.gr] and the Greek skincare brand KORRES, introducing an Organic Herbal Tea Collection with Krokos Kozanis (saffron), a ‘first’ for the international food & drink market.
A unique flower with a beautiful story to tell
The saffron flower, else known as the Krokos flower, grows up in Kozani, North Greece.
Saffron blossoms once a year, every October, blanketing the area with beautiful purple flowers. The flowers are harvested in daily basis and after all have been collected, the fields look empty. However, by dawn, the saffron flower blooms again, creating an enchanting purple carpet.
Petals are separated from the saffron stigmas by hand. A hundred and fifty thousand blooms yield only one kilo of Krokos stigmas. A painstaking process, making saffron more valuable than gold itself.
