Our Mission

Intensive farming is the most damaging activity mankind has ever invented. 4 million hectares of rainforests are destroyed each year to make space to grow soy crops. Mainly to provide enough protein to feed the animals we humans then eat. Fish are also widely used as protein feed for fish farming contributing to overfishing and the degradation of marine habitats.

It’s madness. Insects are the natural food for these animals. The insect-based feed we produce is superior to traditional protein sources and we are able to make it efficiently and without harming our planet.

Our mission is to halt the degradation of land and sea, and in time, return intensive farmland back to the wild.

About Us

Maximum Nutritional Value. Minimal Environmental Impact.

 

Insects are rich in protein and are a natural component of the diets of many fish and free-range poultry. Our technology is significantly more efficient at producing protein than traditional methods of production as our insects are vertically farmed and not restricted to floor space or area. Thanks to our automated system we can produce at industrial scale and offer farmers a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to soymeal and fishmeal.

Our Beginning

Working for five years as a scuba diving instructor, I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to live on the sun-kissed beaches of some of most beautiful places on Earth. This gave me a true insight into the environmental damage that human development and current lifestyles are causing to these paradises. We are killing our own planet and intensive farming and agriculture are two of the most damaging activities on Earth.

I couldn’t keep watching. I had to intervene.

I quit my job in Mexico and decided to leverage on my background in Environmental Engineering to fulfill what had become my life mission: to develop the most sustainable way to feed the world. The answer has come from Mother Nature. It has developed the most efficient way to 'up-cycle' waste back into the food chain.

They are called Black Soldier Flies and they stand at the core of my business.
