THE STORY BEHIND
MY NAME IS DESISLAVA AND I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THE ADVENTURE WE NAMED SAFF
Our saffron garden clothes itself in colour with the coming of the cool October air. When we saw it in bloom for the first time we were fascinated by the magic of nature. Beautiful shades of violet covered the dry ground like a carpet. The fiery flames within the blossoms made their surroundings dance with vibrant, passionate colours. This is when we learned what real, vital soil meant – our land had come alive in our hands, while we gathered each bloom at sunrise.
This is a true beauty – a flower bulb, nurtured with care, blossoming with a precious bounty. Flowers, which carry an exotic aroma of far away lands, whispering the secrets of eternal youth. Saff is a living fairytale, written in the course of thousands of years. It tells of health, profound aroma, and love. A fairytale about a saffron bloom, which captivated and inspired us to create a real-life story of beauty and passion.
And so, in 2015 we established Fante Agro EOOD as an agricultural company. Since then we have followed the principles of organic farming strictly and are to obtain our certificate soon. In perfect harmony with nature, the saffron crocuses bloom in the autumn on the southern slopes of the legendary Balkan Mountains (Trudovetz village).
With great excitement, we gathered the team of experts who would uncover the secrets of eternity and turn them into a precious, cosmetic gem. A gem we would one day give you. Bathed by its light we lead you through the enchanted world of nature, whose secrets are often invisible to the eye.
INNOVATIVE COMPANY OF THE YEAR 2019
In 2019 we participated in the fifteenth anniversary edition of the national competition “Innovative Company of the Year” under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria – Mr. Rumen Radev. The competition is a symbol of high quality and originality of innovation, with an impact on the national and global market. We are very happy to be honored for the creation of the Saffron&Rose cosmetic line, produced with saffron crocus and rose oil.
