Meet the Team
Here at Green Saffron, we like to get to know the faces behind our food, and we’re sure you feel just the same. So we thought it was high time we introduced you to each and every one of our team members, both in Ireland and over in India. If you should spot us on your tasty travels, do say hello!
The Cork contingent
At Green Saffron, 'Head Masaalchi' means 'The Big Cheese' – and that's our Arun. He's our master blender; a spice specialist who's unrivalled in terms of both knowledge and zest for his subject. We call Arun 'The Willy Wonka of Spice'... if you get him talking on the topic, prepare to be there a while!
As the quick-witted amongst you might have guessed from the shared surname, Olive is Arun's wife, and Green Saffron's Customer Relations Manager. She's the friendly point of contact for all customer queries, but there's a lot more to Olive than that sweet demeanour. In the office, she co-ordinates work flow and is widely known as 'the glue that holds us together'.
Operations Manager Padraig is a calm, steadfast, assured sort – the best type of character to have in charge of supply chain management. Padraig looks after all Green Saffron’s logistics and operations, and is most frequently overheard requesting a good strong cup of coffee!
As our Financial Controller, Oliver commands control of the Green Saffron piggybank. His enthusiasm and proactivity have earned him a reputation for being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – handy qualities when dealing with matters of fiscal flow. Along with Arun, Oliver keeps us on course with cash.
We love meeting customers on our stalls, and Leo is the man that holds it all together. Our Farmers Market and Events Manager is involved in both the planning and execution of all our appearances, and, together with his dedicated team of ‘Green Saffronites’, looks after all our lovely customers. He’s a real French charmer –you won’t forget him in a hurry.
If you're ever asked to pick our Marius out of a lineup, the strong arms of our Master Spice Grinder should be a dead giveaway! Marius works under Arun’s direction to create Green Saffron's unique family blends, and assures quality control across our product range. His biggest love is grinding chillies.
When you receive a well-packed, timely order from Green Saffron, you have our Dispatch and Packaging lady, Neringa, to thank. The power pairing of Olive and Neringa works tirelessly to ensure complete customer satisfaction. Nothing is too much effort for our Neringa.
If you’ve eaten something lovely from team Green Saffron at a market or festival, you have Farmers Market and Kitchen Coordinator Edvinas to thank. Working under Arun’s direction, Edvinas looks after all our trademark recipes, cooks, and takes care of preparation and stock control for our many events and markets. A true kitchen star!
