In a recent televised broadcast, Mr. Zvi Houzer revealed the development of Sativus Corp’s newest farm in Golan Heights, a move that advances the company closer to creating a commercial supply of saffron that could disrupt Iran’s centuries long monopoly.
Tel Aviv, Israel, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sativus Tech Corp (OTC: SEDOD/Effective 1/10/2022 OTC: SATT), the first-ever AgTech company that is developing the protocols to grow saffron using vertical farming technology, was the topic of a vigorous discussion during a parliamenary session in Israel. The Deputy Speaker of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament), Mr. Zvi Houzer, spoke about a “global breakthrough in growing saffron.” Though not mentioned by name, Sativus Tech’s subsidiary, Saffron Tech Ltd (“Saffron Tech”) confirmed after the broadcast that they in fact did recently plant sativus corms (bulbs) for saffron in a new outdoor farm in the Golan. This new supply of saffron bulbs supports Saffron Tech, and its R&D efforts to grow saffron in vertical farms.
“We are thrilled that our mission and its importance in the global marketplace is getting noticed,” says Tal Wilk Glazer, CEO of Saffron Tech. “Developing the protocols to grow saffron in vertical farms is a complex and lengthy process with technological and agricultural challenges. We are aiming to streamline this process to establish a reliable and continuous supply of the most coveted spice in the world.”
Approximately 25,000 saffron bulbs were planted in the agriculturally rich Golan Heights. The outdoor farm is being managed by the Shamir Research Institute; a leading research institute operated under the University of Haifa.
Sativus Tech Corp recently announced that it has begun construction on a new vertical farm that is significantly larger than the company’s first farm and equipped with state-of-the-art machinery designed for precision climate control. The new farm will enable the company to advance its research and development of the protocols for vertically farming of saffron. Sativus Tech Corp expects to complete the construction during the first quarter of 2022 and to have the growing protocols complete by the end of 2022.
Saffron’s market growth is currently hindered due to a complicated supply chain and the low annual production of the spice through traditional farming practices. Iran currently dominates saffron production retaining over 90% of the global market. Saffron Tech wants to produce saffron year-round in a reliable and controlled environment to expand the market in multiple sectors including pharmaceutical, culinary, beauty and wellness.
