Rumi Spice

rumi spiceEmily Miller, Kim Jung, and Keith Alaniz want a Shark to back Rumi Spice, their company that grows Saffron in Afghanistan, in Shark Tank episode 824. The three entrepreneurs are all combat veterans who did tours in Afghanistan. They wanted to help the rural farmers in the country earn a decent wage while supplying the world with Afghanistan's most delicious export: Saffron.

Their mission is to “cultivate peace in Afghanistan” by creating demand for agricultural products on the world market. Saffron grows best in arid climates like Afghanistan and the country consistently produces the best spices in the world. They source their product from small farmers and employ over 300 Afghan women to painstakingly harvest the product.

They got the business started with a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $32,000 back in 2015. Saffron costs over $5,000 a pound, making it the most valuable spice in the world. Farmers can make six times more money than if they grew opium! The Rumi Spice team wants a Shark's help getting the word out and with increasing their production. Will a Shark bite on this spicy opportunity?

Rumi Spice Shark Tank Recap

Emily, Kim, and Keith will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Rumi Spice will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
