The potential of insect farming

Are insects becoming the ingredient of the future? This world of insects is growing, as they provide a unique source of nutrients for food and feed, such as protein meals and insect fats that are used as fish meal alternatives and pet food additives.

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.

The concept of insect farming is gearing up and moving toward large-scale insect production. To achieve commercial mass production, current farming systems need automation of some of the key processes. Viscon Logistics is developing and providing technology and automation systems for this new emerging market; scalable insect production!
