Product Description
Kozani saffron is one of the most rare and precious spices worldwide. It is also known for its beneficial properties to the human body. We get it from the dried stigmas of the "saffron" plant, which is cultivated in the region of Kozani and is considered to be one of the best saffron qualities in the world. The production process is as follows: saffron is planted every summer and the cultivators collect its blossoms every autumn - early in the morning - placing them in crates and drying them afterwards. When the drying process is over, the red stigma is separated from the yellow stamens, the pollen and other impurities. This procedure is carried out manually and is very hard work and tiring. Then, the dried stigmas are packed. Saffron gives an intense yellow colour to our food, a light sourish flavour and a wonderful smell of violets. It tastes wonderful in drinks, soups, risottos, hand-kneaded bread, pasta, poultry and seafood. Furthermore, it gives a unique aroma to white sauces. Great attention should be given to the dosage; a large quantity of saffron gives us the absolute opposite result - a very strong and unpleasant flavour to our food.

Compulsory Kozani Saffron Cooperative
The Compulsory Kozani Saffron Producers Cooperative was founded in 1971 with a view to harvesting, processing, packing and distributing the saffron at its sole responsibility, so as to ensure its quality and authenticity. Nowadays, the Cooperative has 1,000 members, who are in fact saffron growers. It is of course based in Kozani - in the village called Krokos. All producers are obliged to deliver their product to the Cooperative which will in turn be responsible for the management of this wonderful product but will also have the exclusive right to harvesting, packing and distributing the products.

Visit the region: Kozani
The Prefecture of Kozani is located in the western part of Macedonia and has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic era. During the Archaic period, the area was inhabited by Greek tribes. During the Roman era, it was conquered by the Romans, followed by the Byzantium and finally became part of the Ottoman Empire until 1912. During its history, the area witnessed great commercial, industrial and home-crafts activity and showed great prosperity in the field of literature, music and architecture. It has lush forests of fir and beech trees, numerous springs and rivers, torrential streams, fierce-looking gorges, rocky slopes, plateaus, acres of grazing land, and valleys. There is also an abundance of rare wildflowers in Kozani, which combine with its wild natural beauty, most harmoniously giving it a serene and almost mystifying beauty.
