Indigo is dedicated to bring a more beneficial agriculture system to Europe.

Alongside growers and buyers, Indigo is building a system responsive to demands for high quality and sustainably produced food and fiber. Indigo develops microbial and digital technologies that improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health. These technologies underpin its pioneering business model, which spans agriculture’s full value chain.

When Indigo decided to expand to Europe, we immediately shortlisted Switzerland as a possible location. In the end, Basel was selected because of its proximity to the most important markets and the pool of international talent available. Having access to so many professionals was key considering the rapid pace at which we wanted to establish a presence in Europe.
The Basel Area Business & Innovation team did a tremendous job in providing support and guiding us through the administrative part of setting up a business in Basel.
