We build a better bug
📢 Great news: our research is published in Frontiers in Genetics!
➡️ With our new BSF more can be produced with the same energy, making BSF protein even more attractive from a sustainability perspective.
Together with Hendrix Genetics we’ve been selecting and breeding Black Soldier Fly larvae with desirable qualities. In just 2 years of running the genetic improvement program, a large-scale and fully automated production trial was done at our production facilities in the Netherlands. An average improvement was found of:
· 39% heavier larvae
· 32% more protein harvested per crate
· 21% more fat harvested per crate
Feeding the world became a bit more effective, while using the same resources.
