We would like to tell you a little more about Zoetic Ltd … My wife and I have always considered ourselves very lucky to have both grown up in farming families. Nothing can compare with the freedom and imagination of a child living on a farm.
Of course, we will never forget the very hard work that keeps a farm running. One topic that always got a mention when a group of farmers met was how they were paid less than what they deserved for their product. So the idea of somehow setting up a better system that would be more favourable to them always lingered at the back of our minds.

Various friends in the UK frequently asked us where they could buy top quality Iranian produce in London. So, whenever we got the opportunity to go home, we always brought some saffron spice and/or pistachio nuts back for them.
During a recent visit back to Iran, a group of small farmers asked if we would be able to sell their produce in the UK. It did not take long for us to accept the challenge and here we are!
We supply only the very best produce. Our pistachio nuts come from Province of Kerman in Iran. This region is also famous for its carpets, amongst many other products.
Our saffron in the foothills of Zarand and also in Kerman. The only farmers we work with are our own family and friends from the same small area.
We believe in giving more back to our farmers to encourage sustainable farming and environmentally friendly cultivation. We asked them if we could handle all the packaging arrangements and they readily agreed.
We take environmental issues very seriously and are constantly striving to find new ways of decreasing our carbon footprint. From the word go, we decided to use more biodegradable materials and no plastic, where possible. One example is that we make our boxes from plain eco-friendly cardboard.
It does not have the usual thin plastic coating or prints. We realised that once a customer takes the glass jar containing the saffron out of the cardboard box, they will simply throw it away. If it cannot be recycled, then at least we wanted it to be completely biodegradable in a landfill site.
We plan to work tirelessly towards fulfilling our dreams and objectives about Zoetic Ltd. Our main goals are to keep both our customers and our hard-working farmers 100% satisfied and do whatever we can to make the world a more eco-friendly place.
