Converting organic food waste into insect protein.
That's how we feed the future.
The black soldier fly.
No Threat To Humans
Black soldier flies do not transmit any diseases and is not considered a pest to humans. They can be found naturally in local ecosystems around the world.
High Growth Rate
Compared to other insects, it has the potential to gain up to 5,000 times its own body weight in two weeks. This enables us to harvest it efficiently as a source of protein.
Besides being able to adapt to different environments, the black soldier fly can consume and breakdown a variety of food waste streams at incredibly fast rates.
Upcycling food waste into a natural, nutritious and sustainable source of protein
Black soldier fly larvae fed on pre-consumer food waste turn into a harvestable block of protein that we can use to feed animals -- and in the future, humans. The larvae is a reliable, traceable, and nutritious alternative feed for farmed animals and pets alike.
Over at IFT, we have developed a comprehensive processing pipeline to process raw insect biomass into fish feed for the aquaculture industry.
Organic fertilizer for agriculture
A by-product of feeding food waste to Black Soldier Fly Larvae is frass, a mixture of larvae excrement, shell casings, and some remaining food substrate. Full of nutrients and immunity-boosting chitin, it is a natural organic fertilizer for growing plants and food crops.
Reducing our carbon footprint with zero water requirements
Our process reduces the massive amount of greenhouses gases released each year due to food waste decomposition. It requires no water input and contributes significantly to the sustainability of the farming industry. It also valorises food waste, thereby creating a circular economy in the process.
