Elevating Saffron Production to New Heights

With Swedish Precision Automation

Our Journey

Established in the heart of Stockholm in 2021, BlueRedGold AB is the culmination of years of rigorous research and meticulous production trials.

In 2022, we achieved a groundbreaking milestone: the launch of the first-ever, industrial-grade, controlled indoor cultivation and year-round saffron production in Åkers Styckebruk, Sweden. This achievement was swiftly followed by our foray into the realms of robotics and automation, underscoring our commitment to innovation and precision.

BlueRedGold is Environmentally friendly Premium Saffron through automated hydroponic vertical indoor growing systems.

Today, we proudly serve our premium saffron to a global clientele. From discerning online customers to renowned entities within the restaurant and food sectors, our reach is extensive.
