We went on a tour of local produce in Tasmania with top chef Massimo Mele and SDFP fruit and vegetable guru Luke Kohler. Tas-Saffron grows only the highest quality saffron with the most fantastic flavour and aroma, Tas-Saff saffron is graded in laboratory conditions against international standards.

Saffron is a spice derived from the dried stigma of the flower of the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus), a species of crocus in the family Iridaceae. Tas-Saffron is painstakingly picked by hand, and it takes over 220,000 plants to make up 1kg of saffron threads.
