Recently, insect farming for animal feed production, as alternative to fishmeal, has had a new impulse thanks to the policies approved by the European Commission. In the last three years, some companies involved in this field, just like Biological Care,
have started a sort of joint venture in different sectors, from planning to experimentation and management, in order to establish an industrial system of edible insects breeding.
The larvae are fed by organic waste, in controlled temperature special boxes, known as Bugsfarm. Eating, the larvae start a bio-conversion process of nutrients producing animal feed, fertilizer, pellet for thermal energy and many other chemical substances.
