For almost 10 years IG Niutex has made it their mission to support the development and processing of natural fibers in Switzerland. Offering a local and sustainable alternative to cotton and chemical fibres, they have been at the forefront of Switzerland’s expanding flax industry. More recently they have been working with the Swiss Wool Industry to promote the sustainable and organic production of wool in Switzerland.
What makes IG Niutex stand out is that their interests lie in every aspect of the value chain. They support professionals and service providers with research and development, knowledge exchange and the promotion of hemp and flax production and products. They also work with government to accelerate legislation processes for the development of the industry. Educating the general public about the industry and its impact on Swiss agriculture is another example of their holistic approach.
Whether you are an individual with an interest in the industry or a big company wanting to work with natural Swiss fibres, you are welcome to become a member by signing up on their website.
