Based in cosmopolitan Melbourne, the food capital of Australia, Saffron Store is a family owned business that’s passionate about international food and dedicated to bringing you historically coveted saffron spice without emptying your wallet.

As a food industry professional, Shari was struck by the lack of high quality but affordable saffron – his favourite spice – available in his adopted country. Saffron is a spice used throughout the world in so many different cuisines and in signature international dishes: the Paella in Spain; Saffron Mussels in France; Saffron Rice in India; Risotto Milanese in Italy…and yet here in Australia where all these nations are represented together, high quality saffron has been relatively inaccessible and expensive.

Saffron Store is a labour of love for founder and Managing Director, Shari Ghobadi. After meeting his Australian wife-to-be during a European travelling holiday, Shari followed her half way round the world, migrating from Iran to Australia in 1985 where he embarked on a career in the catering industry and café management.
