About Protix

The leading insect company

Protix is the world leader in insect ingredients. We believe that feeding the growing world population should go hand-in-hand with protecting our beautiful planet. Driven by this belief we’re on a mission: “bringing the food system back into balance with nature. A huge challenge! Fortunately, the solution lies in nature itself: insects provide low-footprint proteins and other nutrients that can be processed into more sustainable feed and food.

Since 2009, we’ve been working relentlessly to create the best insect ingredients that help feed and food manufacturers bring healthy and sustainable nutrition to the world.

Our superior ingredients are widely used in pet food, animal feed and fertilisers. Our tiny insects are already making a big impact.

Protix History


Low-footprint ingredients

Why do we love insect ingredients? Because they’re the answer to many of the problems the world is facing today.

Insect ingredients have a lower footprint than many of the ingredients commonly used in feed and food. Our insects need very little room to grow, making for far less land use than traditional ingredients. They also need less water and have lower CO₂ emissions. On top of that… insects are nature’s greatest ‘upcyclers’ and thus a natural solution to the huge problem of food waste.

Insect ingredients also happen to be highly nutritious. They are packed with goodness as our cats, dogs, chickens, and other animals who naturally catch and devour them, already know. Incorporating them into feed and pet food allows for healthy, more sustainable nutrition.
