Forging a new frontier in protein supply and feed sustainability.
Protenga develops intensive insect farming systems for sustainable protein production.
We produce sustainable, high-protein, safe and cost-effective animal nutrition and organic fertilizer by using a novel, scalable insect-based bioconversion process to recapture nutrients from organic side-streams. Our responsible and innovative approach focuses on driving necessary change in the global food supply chain.
OUR PRODUCTS AND INDUSTRIES
Protenga produces and distributes Insect-based Nutrition for aquaculture, premium livestock, pet food and plants. Our four core products are
We pride ourselves with having a strong focus on customer service, quality and safety. We work closely together with our customers and partners to develop optimal feed solutions and product offerings from nutrition formulation all the way to marketing.
We harness the natural power of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia Illucens) to extract nutrients and decompose organic sidestreams in science-based, engineered systems. This circular economy approach allows us to break the produce-consume-dispose nutrient flow characterising our current food system by tackling and connecting two urgent global challenges:
- Supply locally produced, high-quality animal feed protein to cope with increasing demand and reduce the strain on natural resources resulting from extensive overfishing (fishmeal) and soil erosion (soy and other feed crops).
- Upcycle a broad range of bystreams and waste organic materials from agriculture and food production to its highest possible value instead of disposing them.
