Hi Team Rumi,

Happy New Year! We hope 2018 is off to a great start. We over here at Rumi Spice are hard at work spreading the word about saffron as a force for good. We could not do this without the loyalty and continued support of people like you, so thank you! Learn more about our mission and how you can help in 2018 here.

2017 was an amazing year for us and we couldn’t have done it without you! From appearing on Shark Tank to being selected for the Chobani incubator, we have plenty to be thankful for. Most importantly, we were able to employ and change the lives of a total of 1,952 women in Afghanistan and over 350 farmersall thanks to your support. 


At Rumi Spice, our progress does not stop here. For the New Year, we pledge to continue to build our team and give more opportunities to the Afghan people. On a larger scale, we are working hard to strengthen the Afghan economy. We want to make our high-quality saffron accessible to everyone, while continuing to drive value for the Afghan people who produce it. In an industry where big corporations dominate, it is a tough task, but with your support, we are more than confident!


Healthy Ways to Start the New Year

Many of you may be feeling motivated to start the New Year off right and are ready to attack your resolutions head on, but some of you may be feeling less than stellar after all of those holiday indulgences ('Tis the season, right?). Our team at Rumi Spice has compiled a list of some of our favorite ways to get back on track after the holiday festivities. Hint: One of our favorites includes enhancing our moods with a cup of saffron tea. Read more on our latest blog post here.


Rumi Recipes
Whether you are new to cooking or are a seasoned vet, we have an arsenal of delicious recipes for you to try in the New Year. Some of our favorites include our grilled chicken wings with an Afghan curry braise or our saffron seafood risotto. Both of these dishes will warm you up on the coldest of winter nights. Looking for something different? Check out all of our recipes here.
