Develop an efficient and sustainable system that converts organic food waste into insect biomass, which is in turn made into a protein feed alternative for aquaculture and livestock

Black Soldiers (BSF)

Grow industrially Black Soldier Flies (BSF) that will be transformed into animal protein, oil and fertilizer.

Recycle Food Waste

Collect and feed BSF with organic waste from the agro-industry

HiTech

Leverage IoT, robotics, automation and machine learning to render our process efficient and cost effective

Positive Loop

Close the circular economy cycle – from waste to feed to food to waste

And we do all this in an environmentally friendly way, with no greenhouse gas production and no waste rejection!
WHY INSECTS?

  Incredibly nutritious

Insect proteins perform much higher than vegetable, algae or single-cell protein in animal feed. Insects are packed with protein, amino acids, and fiber. At +70% protein content, they contain more protein than soybean or salmon! It’s no surprise that they’re already present in 20–70% of animal diets in the wild.

Environmentally-friendly

Insects require only 9%, 3% and 17% of land, water and feed usage respectively compared to other protein sources and generate only 1% of CO2 emissions for the same protein output.

Recyclers

Insects can be fed on all types of waste such as manure, slaughterhouse and animal products processing plant waste, cereals, fruit and vegetable, kitchen waste; some can even digest plastics!

Economic opportunity

Market opportunities for insects are massive and untapped.
Insects production at scale can serve the following markets: animal feed, pet food, human nutrition, plant nutrition, nutraceuticals and green chemistry.

Why BSF? The ultimate bio-converter

An incredible capacity to transform all sorts of organic products including bio waste into high value proteins and oils.
Many other high added value opportunities under development: chitin protein extraction, biodiesel extraction, biochemistry, nutraceuticals nutrients, new antibiotics, etc.
Proven to be a viable replacement to soya or fish proteins in fish, chicken, pig and many more animal feeds. Naturally part of these animal diets for millions of years
A very low risk animal to breed, not vector to any known pests, not attracted to humans habitats and almost no environmental footprint
The current focus of Nasekomo is on replacing fish feed
in South East Europe with insect derived products.
We are currently developing the following :

Whole live and dried
BSF larvae for animals

Pet Food

Natural oil product
for animal feeds

Fish Feed (Fat Component)

Dry powder meal
for animal feeds

Fish Feed (Protein Component)

Organic
fertilizers

Agriculture and horticulture

The Nasekomo revolution will have the following environmental impact:

  • Reduce the waste amount and its CO2 emissions
  • Reduce pressure on fish stock by producing new protein sources to grow fish
  • Reduce transport emissions by producing and consuming locally feed for animals

Draining natural resources to feed our animals to produce our food that ends up as polluting waste

Recycle waste to grow insects to transfor into animal feeds to produce food

Nasekomo, the team

Nasekomo was created by a seasoned team of entrepreneurs and experts in the agronomy field. The team is growing fast and we will soon be recruiting experts in entomology, industrial engineering, robotics and IoT: if you are interested in joining in the Nasekomo revolution, send us your application.
