ÿNSECT

THE COMPANY:

Ÿnsect is pioneering large-scale production of mealworm protein in controlled environments for use as an alternative fishmeal and fish oil source.

it up

MISSION:

To convert food waste into premium protein to feed livestock, pets, and people.

PRODUCT:

 

A healthy, natural, sustainable, and efficient protein source for food production. Mealworm cultivation utilizes food waste in a large scale, controlled factory environment, and produces a high-quality protein output.

 

I dig it - HERE'S WHY...

With wild fisheries at capacity, sustainable fish farms are an important way to feed protein to a growing population.  Continuing to feed wild fish to farm raised fish harms our ocean ecosystem.  See http://www.fao.org/state-of-fisheries-aquaculture

 

Why it matters

2030

22%

By 2030, aquaculture will produce half of the world’s supply of fish, including fish for food and other products such as fishmeal, and will supply over 60% of the fish for human consumption. (“Fish to 2030” WorldBank)

The global fishery output allocated to feed livestock and pets is approximately 22%. Insects are a natural nutritional source for pets and farmed animals, mainly fish and poultry.

FEWER resources

Mealworms have access to their feedstock throughout the world; have low risk of disease; and produce the same amount of protein on 98% less land with 50% fewer natural resources. 

zero waste

Ynsect’s process produces no waste and complies with the UN’s sustainability goals. The mealworms feeds on by-products from crop production.
