With an aim to provide good quality saffron, the Jammu and Kashmir Government, in a unique initiative, has created an e-auction portal ‘India International Kashmir Saffron Trading Centre (IIKSTC)’ for farmers of Geographical Indications (GI)-tagged ‘Kashmir Saffron’.
Through the website www.saffroneauctionindia.com
, the centre will help both buyers and sellers in online trading, avoiding middlemen, and secure a better price for the produce.
The saffron will now be properly tested by the Indian government, which will have facilities to dry the product in latest technology vacuums.
It will also be properly packed with proper code to avoid manipulation.
