Grinsect's future-proof circular model is carried out with the power of billions of insects

Modern society faces several global problems, such as a disproportionately growing population, increasing food and protein demand, and drastically growing food wastage in developed countries. All this puts enormous pressure on the food and feed industry. 

 

The rising temperature and climate change prevent production growth and harm conventional crop growth. Unfortunately, animals are also at risk due to the wasteful consumer demand. The harmful effects of overproduction and overfishing are already visible in our environment. Therefore climate change will gradually reduce the opportunities for horizontal farming.

Multiple global problems can be solved by large-scale insect production

Utilizing the power of insects is an environmentally friendly choice. Doing so can reduce greenhouse gas emissions; with every kg of locally produced protein, we can decrease overfishing and scale down the proportion of imported protein products such as genetically modified soy. By exploiting black soldier flies in this way, a forgotten but efficient element of the food chain can be re-introduced in the 21st-century economy.

Biowaste management

In our facility, we feed the black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) with agricultural biowaste, food and feed industry side streams, and unsold surpluses from retail chains. This BSFL substrate treatment lowers our partners' ecological footprint, and Grinsect can produce sustainable protein through bioconversion to meet our customer demand.

Sustainable production

Industrial insect breeding can be done in an easily scalable vertical system that doesn't require new arable land. The production cycle is fast, with low water requirements and greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the limited availability of conventional agricultural resources, mass breeding insects and utilizing them as food and feed plays a crucial role in our everyday lives, as insects provide high-quality animal protein and healthy fats.

Our larvae are one of the most promising candidates to transform low-value streams (grain, vegetables, fruits, and a wide range of stem residues) into high-quality protein and lipids through bioconversion.

The mass rearing of black soldier fly larvae comes with a significant feed uptake. We are constantly looking for farmers, processors, or other operators with a considerable amount of untreated plant-based byproducts or unsold surpluses who seek alternative, value-generating, and cost-effective recycling solutions.
