Sustainable protein Source
Protein is a fundamental component of life, and in order to feed the world, we will need to generate more protein in a more sustainable manner. By 2050, the world’s population will have grown to 9.7 billion people, increasing the demand for protein. To fulfil the increased demand for protein, commercial feed output will need to expand by 70% by 2050.
Insect are one of the most sustainable way of meeting these needs. Insects are high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, folic acid, and vitamins B12, C, and E, among other nutrients. The worldwide edible insect market is expected to reach $1.4 billion AUD in value by 2023
CONVERTING FOOD WASTE INTO LIVESTOCK FEED
On the other hand, a large volume of organic waste is disposed of in landfills each year, which represents an opportunity. Alternatively, we use a part of these waste sources to convert them to compost a product with much less value in the supply chain.
High price of insect protein on the market
Currently they turn organic waste to compost mainly and no bioconversion processing.
traditional and conventional technologies now manufacture protein at a high cost that makes it unviable to enter the supply chain. Furthermore, these solutions need a lot of time and effort. These proteins might primarily be employed in animal feed and pet food meal production.
Current insect farms are labour intensive and it is nearly impossible for business owners to make their product viable getting into market as a replacement of plant-based sources, so it limits the capacity of production generally. They need ways to make the final product cost lower. We are going to revolutionize the industry by technological solution of insect rearing.
