Since 2014, Indigo has questioned agriculture’s full value chain to improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health. The company’s scientific discoveries and digital innovations have amplified new value from soil to sale, benefiting tens of thousands of growers across millions of acres. Indigo is also the company behind Indigo Carbon, – a program that pays growers to reduce on-farm emissions, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and improve soil health. In 2019, Indigo was ranked #1 on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list, placing again among the top three in 2020. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Indigo has additional offices in Memphis, TN; Research Triangle Park, NC; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Basel, Switzerland; and São Paulo, Brazil.
