Who We Are

We are a biotechnology start up in South Africa whose vision is to rebuild the world sustainably using biotechnology.


Our mission is to solve the problem of toxic and environmentally unfriendly chemical colourants used in the textile industry by producing better alternatives using microorganisms. Our focus currently is on indigo, the dye used to colour denim blue.

Our Reason To Exist

Through our existence, we aim to invigorate and promote the science sector in Africa, create sustainable solutions for a world that desperately needs them and have meaningful social impact by contributing to environmental protection and human advancement.
