InnovaFeed Insect Based Protein - A circularly logical industrial symbiosis model for the production of insect protein

InnovaFeed aims at developing innovative, sustainable and high-quality food systems to feed the world by reintroducing insects in the food chain.

Fueled by a fast-growing world population, the global deficit in high-quality protein is widening and will be one of the key issues of the upcoming decade. Insects, thanks to their ability to convert low-value biomass into high-quality animal proteins are an excellent solution to produce protein for animal feed, more specifically for aquaculture. InnovaFeed has developed a unique industrial symbiosis model to produce insect protein while minimizing its environmental impact by following a zero-waste and circular logic. By placing the insect at the heart of the agri-food system and restoring it to its natural place in the ecosystem, InnovaFeed’s solution responds concretely and competitively to an increase in protein demand while contributing to the development of a more sustainable food system.
