We are killing our own planet. I can't stand by and let that happen.
Animal farming is the most destructive activity humans have ever invented. 4 million hectares of rainforest are destroyed every year to grow soybeans to feed livestock, whilst overfishing has caused the world's marine populations to have halved since 1970.
In 2014 I quit my job in Mexico and decided to leverage 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 transform waste back into the food chain.
They are called Black Soldier Flies and they stand at the core of my business.

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.
