Protifly - Uses the Black Soldier Fly to turn agroindustrial byproducts into high quality ingredients for animal feed manufacturers.

Protifly uses an insect (Hermetia illucens) to valorize the organic agroindustrial byproducts.

Protifly uses the larvae of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia Illucens) to recycle organic waste into high quality molecules, mainly protein and oil sold to animal feed manufacturers. More, the residue of the rearing is also a good organic fertilizer : it comes full circles. With a first industrial unit in France and a modular technology, Protifly aims to deploy its recycling solution worldwide to produce local protein for a more natural and sustainable food chain.
