Marlborough Saffron leads the way in innovation and formulation development providing products with great flavour and colour with convenience of use –

  • Saffron Threads – plump, colourful, flavoursome threads, with an orange hew of exceptional quality (Produced using unique drying technology).
  • Saffron Extract – A unique NZ formulation which is water based, stabilising the ingredients for optimum colour, flavour and ease of use.
  • Saffron Verjuice – This Neudorf based Verjuice creates sensational dressings when combined with oil and orange juice. A great dressing with Cloudy Bay Clams.
  • Saffron Oil – In a style similar to Truffle oil Saffron supercritical extract is combined with rice bran oil to create an oil with Saffron flavour for dressings, Sauces and garnishing.
  • Saffron Encapsulated Powder – Encapsulation provides a shelf stable product ideal for use where no added liquid is wanted or required. Saffron encapsulated powder looks great sprinkled like a “pollen” on a dessert .
