For example:

Enterra is a sustainable insect farming operation that grows black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) as a renewable source of nutrients for animals and plants. The larvae are reared on pre-consumer recycled food collected from local farms, food processors and grocery stores. After harvesting, the larvae are processed into high value protein and oil commodities as sustainable substitutes for costly and resource-intensive ingredients like fishmeal and palm kernel oil. The larvae manure is a natural fertilizer that is used in organic crop production.

Over 30% of the world’s food is wasted before reaching the end consumer. Meanwhile feed manufacturers are searching for sustainable alternatives to traditional protein sources. Enterra is solving these two global problems with its innovative technology, securing the future of the world’s food supply by closing the loop on waste food.
