About Protix

The leading insect company

At Protix, we believe in harnessing the latest technology to produce the ingredient of the future: insects. We are the market leader when it comes to verifiable and scalable insect breeding. To change the food system, we need to deliver a quality product and a reliable output. The black soldier fly (hermetia illucens) is a key player in bringing our vision to life: their larvae provide us with a unique source of protein for food and feed! With high-tech solutions, artificial intelligence, genetic improvement programs and robotics, Protix brings the food system back in balance with nature.

Beyond nutrition there is attraction. We believe there is an advantage to feeding live insects that surpasses the individual building blocks of nutrition.

Nutritionist Ward van Os
Insects are the most exclusive, the most exotic source of animal protein. The more exotic a protein, the smaller the chance of an animal having a reaction to it.

General Manager Martin Penders
In 2014 we showed our samples at the Interzoo Trade Fair: little pots of pet foods made from Protix insect ingredients. Those samples already got us a lot of attention: it shows that innovation is picked up quickly.

Farming insects for our planet

Our insects can turn low-grade food waste into body mass quickly and sustainably. They need very little room to grow, making for a far smaller carbon footprint than alternative sources of protein. And even though the scale of production is industrial, we are still insect farmers at heart: we pay close attention to the wellbeing of our delicate larvae.

What we do for our planet


The Protix journey

It has been our life mission since 2009 to bring the food system back in balance with nature. We will do this by continuously looking for better solutions on both product and production technology. Of course, none of this could happen without a strong and driven team, who all share the same values and goals. The driving force behind Protix!
