Agrisera X-mas gift to We Agroforestry

As a X-mas gift, Agrisera supports "Vi Agroiforestry" - Where the trees grow, people grow!

Vi Agroforestry (Vi-skogen) is a Swedish development organisation focusing their efforts on the most exposed and vulnerable population of East Africa. Through agroforestry and strengthening of farmers’ organisations they empower small-holder farmer families to reduce poverty and hunger. At the same time they combat deforestation, climate change and contribute to increased biodiversity. So far, Vi Agroiforestry has contributed to planting over 141 million trees and supported more than 2.4 million people getting out of poverty. And together we can help more! Vi Agroforestry work in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania - four countries that are severely affected by deforestation and climate change and that for many years have endured its devastating effects on both humans and the nature.

State of the art Agrisera facility, officially opened!

 
In the end of November 2021, Agrisera's antibody purification, conjugation and catalog antibody facility, was officially opened. It is located in Umeå, Sweden, in near proximity of Umeå University and Umeå Plant Science Centre, Agrisera's valued collaboration partners.

The opening ceremony gathered over 35 of Agrisera's employees from both our facilities, in Umeå and Vännäs. Agrisera's founder and former CEO, Greger Nordlund, shared with us the most memorable moments of Agrisera's over 35 years long history.  

This was a very special moment for all of us, those who worked at Agrisera for over 10 or 20 years, as well as for those who just recently joined our team. 

We are looking forward to the future, where we will continue to produce innovative antibodies to support worldwide research in plant science, and human medicine, through Agrisera's partnership with Olink in the area of high quality proteomics.
