Saffron Road’s products celebrate the memorable meals and mutual values families and friends of all cultures share around the dinner table.
Saffron Road’s initial four products: Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Biryani, Lamb Saag, and Lamb Vindaloo are currently sold nationwide at Whole Foods Market and select natural/specialty foods retailers. Each entree is made from only the finest all natural ingredients, including pasture raised lamb and Certified HumaneÒ chicken, which are never given any antibiotics or hormones.

There are upwards of 6 million American Muslims with over $170 billion in purchasing power that are looking for Halal products.
"We are so excited to be launching Saffron Road at the Fancy Food Show. I've been exhibiting at them since 1992 and I always see a great group of progressive buyers, that understand leading edge concepts like Halal," says Saffron Road’s Executive Vice President and current NASFT Board Member Jack Acree. “It is exactly this type of buyer that understands the incremental sales potential of a brand like Saffron Road,” said Acree.
