Developing the world's most efficient and sustainable way to produce protein.

Like humans, animals need protein in order to grow. However, the protein that livestock are fed typically comes from soy, which adds to current mass deforestation, or fish caught from oceans that are already drastically overfished. The production and sourcing of these common proteins is creating habitat-loss and dead zones in the sea, and it's significantly increasing global greenhouse gas emissions. By enabling widespread adoption of insect protein as a sustainable alternative to soy and fishmeal, Entocycle is helping feed the Earth's animals without destroying the natural world. Entocycle uses technology to bring world-leading efficiencies to help convert waste organic matter into protein by means of insects. The company's modular, environmentally controlled, and automated indoor system allows farmers to create sustainable insect protein from organic waste, anywhere in the world, 365 days a year. In so doing, Entocycle makes healthy food for farmed animals without the harmful effects on the planet.
