The Entec team share their expertise with industry stakeholders at a collaboration event hosted by the University of Exeter.
We aim to deliver sustainable, high quality and nutritious products for poultry, pet and aquaculture feed. Using highly efficient automated processing and artificial intelligence we are looking to revolutionise feed production systems; reducing CO2 emissions with our energy efficient insect rearing technology while providing socially responsible, cost effective nutrition.
We are driven by a desire to relieve pressure on the natural environment by developing a sustainable alternative to fishmeal and soybean meal.
Building upon successful pilot studies we launched our lab-scale production of yellow mealworms in 2019, rearing them using nutrient-dense brewery spent grains (the major by-product of the brewing industry).
We are now moving into the product testing phase of our yellow mealworm with industry partners, and we are excited about the development and release of our new product range in the near future. These products will include insect protein flour, chitin and enriched insect oil, in addition to insect products derived from the house cricket. Initially selling to the aquaculture, poultry and pet feed food industries on a regional and then countrywide scale, we hope to release the UK feed industry from its reliance on international imports, improve environmental sustainability and increase productivity, helping to move the industry towards a net zero emissions future.
Our mission is to supply high quality insect-based protein to drive forward a sustainable food production system. Entec Nutrition is driven by our commitment to premium nutrition, protecting the environment and animal welfare. Using the latest technology and a wealth of scientific expertise in insect rearing, we create consistent products that you can rely on.
