It just so happens that I was listening to a speach from the Tasmanian Premier yesterday and he was spruiking their growing saffron industry. I will see if there is anymore I can find out however you will probably find it as quickly (more likely faster-being a rocket scientist and all) as me as this is all the info I have at the moment.


If you come to a dead end and would like me to find out anymore for you please let me know.

Kind Regards and Best Wishes Ron Redding Hervey Bay Australia
