The current food system is broken.
Did you know that an area of forest the size of a football pitch is destroyed every second? Did you know that most of this land is then used to grow crops to feed animals? In fact, an area almost three times the size of Germany is dedicated to soy production, with 80% of the soy produced used to feed cattle, pigs, chickens and even (farmed) fish. This isn't a problem confined to the rainforests of South America - this is a threat to all life on earth. The world's forests absorb up to 40% of global carbon dioxide emissions - and without the oxygen that trees release, life would struggle to exist.
There's a better way. And the answer comes from nature.
Insects are a natural protein source for animals including pigs, chickens and fish. We're combining nature's natural processes with pioneering technologies to produce sustainable protein at scale, and from anywhere in the world. We turn local food waste into protein-rich insects to feed animals. Insect protein is a sustainable alternative to soy or fishmeal which are both having catastrophic effects on biodiversity and the health of our planet. We aim to help bring an end to the mindless destruction of the natural world, and hope to one day see much of the land currently dedicated to intensive farming returned to the wild, restoring Earth's natural systems.
