Increased global populations with declining food stocks and land on which to grow crops is fuelling global concern for food security. Our solution will compete in this global and growing protein market and deliver a viable and cost effective protein supplement.
We believe that our insect protein solutions should act as a complement to traditional plant sources and used within animal feed could help freeing up land to grow crops for direct consumption by the rapidly growing global population..
"Scarcities of agricultural land, water, forest, fishery and biodiversity resources, as well as nutrients and non-renewable energy are foreseen. Edible insects contain high quality protein, vitamins and amino acids for humans. Insects have a high food conversion rate. They emit less greenhouse gases and ammonia than conventional livestock. Insects can be grown on organic waste." - FAO, 2014
