The United Nations forecasts a global protein deficiency of 60 million tonnes a year by 2050

Therefore, alternative methods of producing protein are required that can meet these rising global demands, whilst also reducing environmental impact through more sustainable production systems and practices.

Insects are the most efficient sustainable alternative to animal protein

Insects are small, they need little space, hardly any food – and they multiply rapidly. In addition,
their food chain does not affect the diet of us humans, in contrast to conventional livestock.
From a sustainability standpoint, this makes them unrivaled economically, socially and ecologically.

Kinsect develops an high scalable business model for intensive breeding of soldier flies

Kinsect designs and develops highly efficient plants of insect farming at industrial scale for animal feed. This model is based on a circular and zero-waste logic.

A new model to meet tomorrow food system challenges.

Food systems will face numerous challenges in coming years. The future of food will undoubtedly focus on providing resilient and sustainable food systems, combining both environmental positive impact with security for the consumer.
