Iran supplies 90 percent of the global demand for rosewater in light of its great farms and high-quality Mohammadi roses, said Mohsen Hallaji, who is involved in the development of Industrial Cluster of Kashan Rosewater, Herbal Drinks and Essence.
He told Iran Daily that Kashan is the hub for producing Mohammadi rose and rosewater in Iran.Kashan, which has 1,900 hectares under cultivation of Mohammadi rose, is home to 10 percent of entire Mohammadi rose farms nationwide.
He put the average Mohammadi rose production at four tons per hectare while the total output of Mohammadi rose from farms and rose gardens in Kashan stands at 8,000 tons.
Hallaji said extraction of rosewater (golabgiri) is conducted using traditional and industrial methods.“We have 27 industrial units and 1,500 traditional units for rosewater production across Kashan, providing direct or indirect job opportunities for 18,000 people.”
Since Kashan has many rosewater extraction factories and workshops, Mohammadi roses produced in farms of Kerman, Fars,
Tabriz and Khorasan regions are also sent to Kashan for extracting rosewater, he said.
