Large-scale insect production

Are insects becoming the ingredient of the future? The world of insects is growing, as insects efficiently turns organic waste into high-value ingredients for animal feed and plant nutrition.

Insect farming is the practice of breeding insects as livestock, also referred to as mini livestock. Insects need very little room to grow, making for a sustainable and smaller carbon footprint than alternative sources of protein. Insect farming in an indoor environment is important to make food available year-round, since insects are available in nature only during certain months.
