We introduce ourselves

SwissDeCode was founded in 2016 by Gianpaolo Rando, a PhD scientist, and Brij Sahi, a senior executive, after understanding how rapid DNA detection solutions could improve food safety. 

Since then, driven by our vision of a safe food supply chain, we have been working everyday to help farmers and food manufacturers to grow and produce food that is safe to eat. By detecting food contamination and adulteration earlier, we help prevent food recalls and improve the trust of consumers in their products.

SwissDeCode's ultimate objective is to develop the standard food industry technology for real-time certification of food authenticity and quality, as well as of supply chain processes & environments.

Executive management comment

What did we do right moving from the beginning in 2016 to today when we are a Great place to Work?

We genuinely believe that we have lived and breathed our values. What the team looks is how we are working together and how do we apply our values. It is fair to say that our values have been and are the core of our company and we expect it from ourselves as well as from every member. Communicate openly and positively is the key as well as assuming that every situation has a solution. During challenging times, optimism helps us to find a silver lining and continue going motivated towards the goals.
