We're obsessively passionate about cooking with this unique spice and are excited to share this with you.
For centuries Afghanistan was recognized as the preeminent junction of the Silk Road trade routes between Asia and Europe, which stretched 4, 350 miles. A country rich in natural resources and timeless craftsmanship. Afghanistan is now positioned to revive its place in the global market. The opening of new transport corridors, the ease of doing business in the digital age and innovations in the manufacturing technology mark the renaissance of the Silk Road.
