Entofood research program was initiated in Madagascar in 2011 with an intensive program of species and feedstock selection, enforcing driving factors:
- Sustainable business model
- Feed security
- Large-scale facility
- Global roll out
In 2012, Entofood built its pilot farm in Malaysia and carried out its in-depth applied research program.
During the past years Entofood gathered a large factual database on insect zootechny, breeding, nutritional profile of insect-based products and their application in aquaculture and livestock industry. This gives to the company a unique asset to offer services, forecasts and industrial development with a very high degree of reliability.
In 2013, the company was awarded with the Bionexus status from the Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation for its proven bio-conversion technology to process organic waste into animal proteins for animal feed and organic fertilizer for plants nutrition.
Entofood has conceived, studied and validated automated production lines (processing of organic side-stream, grow-out facility, harvesting and processing of finished products) to enable rollout of large-scale operations. Technical choices have been made, taking into account market needs of volume, production cost and quality.
Entofood is an associated member of the International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed (IPIFF) bringing together 28 members operating in the insect value chain, all over the world.
