Sales Manager Rumi Spice

  • Location Chicago, IL
  • Category Business
  • Job Type Full-Time
Company Description

Rumi partners with Afghan farmers to grow and distribute the world's best saffron. We are former Army officers who served combat tours in Afghanistan. Since leaving the military, my cofounders and I feel we still have unfinished business to support Afghanistan and its people. We founded Rumi Spice to work directly with Afghan farmers to import exceptionally high quality saffron. In Afghanistan, we’ve hired 384 Afghan women, stood up our three processing facilities, and have over 90 farmers in our network. Rumi saffron now graces the tables and kitchens of The French Laundry, Daniel, Le Bernardin, Bouley, NAHA, and the Culinary Institute of America.
