Entologics was founded to address the growing demand for alternative, sustainably produced and affordable protein to feed the increasing world population.
Entologics is responding to the growing demand for a sustainable and affordable source of protein. We are using innovative technology and the natural properties of insects to upcycle organic waste into high-grade protein to replace fishmeal. Entologics and its partners will set up an academy to train bioengineers and others to produce protein from insects in an environmentally sustainable manner to help grow this nascent industry.
Entologics will have a direct impact on the wild fish stocks in the oceans. It takes one ton of wild fish to raise 200kg of farmed salmon. Replacing fishmeal with insectmeal will immediately save that ton of wild fish, allowing them to breed and be eaten by other fish in the oceans. At full capacity, it is estimated that Entologics will use over 80,000 tons of low-value organic waste per year, converting it into high-value protein and compost with the possibility of creating biofuels as well. Entologics will train and employ at least 25 local people in its first plant in Brazil and set up a training academy to help develop expertise in the insect breeding industry to a point where it is able to compete globally with the fishmeal industry.
