If the results of the analysis do not fulfill our expectations or our customers requirements, the batch will be immediately returned to its source.


It is as important for our company to know the accurate origine of the raw material, as for our customer to know the history of the saffron he is buying.
Traceability allows us to know at every moment and quickly, the exact origin and composition of each and every one of our product.
All the saffron entering our stores, as well as the final product destined to our customers, receive a different number for each batch, which should allows for its prompt identification.


From the moment saffron is purchased from the farmer, to the moment it finally reaches the consumer, saffron undergoes numerous hygiene controls.
Our suppliers of raw material and packaging, as well as the tranport companies we work with, have been strictly evaluated on questions of quality and hygiene.
Our staff participate in information and training programmes in this area, being perfectly aware of the importance of hygiene in a working environment.
