The black soldier fly, food of the future

The goal?

Reduce the ecological impact of the agri-food industry (responsible for 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions) and anticipate the increase in the world's population (which should reach 10 billion human beings in 2050 according to the UN).

Hence the choice made by Innovafeed, certified B Corp, to breed the black soldier fly, which generates a hundred times less greenhouse gas emissions than other livestock.

Not to mention a production model based on sharing with two other sites: one provides the energy needed for the Innovafeed factories, the other the agricultural co-products used to feed the flies.
