Our Partners

Entec Nutrition Ltd received funding from the Agritech Cornwall Innovation Grant Scheme funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2021. This fund supported R&D activity which resulted in the analysis of the nutritional content of dried mealworms and the development of processing methods to produce nutritious oil-rich and protein-rich ingredients from mealworms. This work will be valuable in the ongoing development of sustainable, functional feed additives for use in the poultry and aquaculture sectors.
