What We Do

Black Soldier Fly Farming

As the world population continues to grow, alternative protein sources must be developed. Insects are a sustainable and resilient source of protein. With expectations to triple within five years, the global insect market is currently estimated to be $400 million. In addition to protein source for livestock, the global edible insect marketing is a growing contributor.

The unique features of the Black Soldier Fly and it expedited growth, sustainable nature and vitamin composition, make it a preferred global protein source. One to two million pounds of BSF can be produced per acre compared to 1,500 pounds of Soy. BSF require very little water which adds to their sustainability and resiliency.

Alternative Protein Market

While facing climate change and natural resource scarcity, ensuring sufficient, nutritious, safe and affordable food to a fast-growing world population with changing dietary habits becomes increasingly challenging. The protein supply is in this respect most critical, both for human consumption and animal feed.

The global market for edible insects may almost triple over the next five years to $1.18 billion. Current uses of insect proteins include:

  • Aquiculture (fish food)
  • Poultry feed
  • Pet food
  • Exotic Pet food
  • Gluten Free flour
  • Protein bars
  • Snacks
