Like humans, animals need protein in order to grow. However, the production and sourcing of the protein that livestock are fed is creating habitat-loss and dead zones in the sea, and 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.
