We are also passionate about innovation and new sustainable production methods
World leading producer of saffron
“By setting the standards for the highest quality, sustainably and ethically produced saffron, BlueRedGold will build a globally recognized and trusted brand supplying consumers, retail, food services and the consumer packaged food industry worldwide with saffron and innovative saffron products"
We break new ground in building the world's first large scale facility for automated production of saffron in a controlled indoor environment.
BlueRedGold AB was founded in Stockholm in 2021 after 4 years of research and production tests.
The first industrial controlled indoor production and full year cycle of saffron were delivered in Åkers Styckebruk in 2022.
Robotics and automation development started in 2022.
We sell online, through retailers within the restaurant and food industry, or via local entrepreneurs and gourmet partners.
BlueRedGold already has a functioning controlled environment production facility, and in 2022 we established our first commercial partnerships and sales.
"It's great when a dream comes true - but this is just the beginning. The goal is to become a world leader in the saffron market in order to contribute to a sustainable ethical saffron production at all stages.”
