INSECTS : THE FUTURE OF FOOD

You may be surprised to learn that insects are a highly nutritious and healthy food source with high fat, protein, vitamins, fibre and mineral content.

By the year 2050, the planet will be packed with 9 billion people. In low and middle-income countries, the demand for animal products is rising sharply as economies and incomes grow; in the next few decades, we’ll need to figure out how to produce enough protein for billions more mouths. We believe that insects are part of the solution!

  • COMPLETE PROTEIN

    Contains the nine essential amino acids like other organic meat sources including beef, chicken, and pork.

  • 100% NATURAL

    There are over 1,000 varieties of insects edible to humans. There’s something for everyone.

  • ECO-FRIENDLY

    Insects need only 8% of the feed and water that cows need to make the same amount of protein.

WHAT INSECTS ARE WE USING?

Our products contain Buffalo worms, and unlike their name might suggest they are not worms but a species of beetle.
They contain up to 60% of protein.
Our insects are fed with the same wheat bran, carrots and grain that are fed to organic chickens. Only good stuff!

ARE THEY EDIBLE?

Absolutely!

Insects are already part of millions of people daily diet. Of course, not all insects are edible but Buffalo worms are perfectly safe to eat. As well as its excellent nutritional value we selected this species because it matches the EU food standards.

WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?

Our priorities are food quality and safety.

Our insects are bred in the Netherlands, in a specialised farm that strictly follows European standards. Every single insect batch can be traced back to production weeks and its diet only consists in healthy feed (wheat bran, carrots and grain for organic chicken).

CAN SOMEONE BE ALLERGIC TO INSECTS?

Yes, even though it is very unlikely.

Insects belong to the arthropod family. We advise people who are allergic to shellfish, molluscs or mites not to eat insects.

WHY DO INSECTS HAVE A LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT?

You may not realize it but producing beef or pork can be very damaging to the environment. Alternatively, for the same weight produced, insects do not consumer water, they consume a tenth of the feed, they do not need land (they can be bred off the ground) and also they do not emit CO2.
The ideal answer to tomorrow’s challenges!
