Enterra Feed

In September 2014, Wheatsheaf invested in Enterra Feed Corporation, a British Columbia-based company that has developed a process that imitates nature to transform high-nutrient, pre-consumer food waste into protein, natural oil and fertilizer.

Enterra’s proprietary bio-conversion process uses larvae of the Black Soldier Fly to recycle nutrients from pre-consumer food waste. This organic waste, diverted from food retailers, distributors and processors, would otherwise be lost to landfills or used in composting operations, with considerable loss in complex food nutrients.

The fully grown larvae are harvested and processed into high-value protein and oils which are proven substitutes for resource-intensive feed ingredients, such as fishmeal, poultry meal and soybean meal.

The bio-conversion process also creates an organic natural fertilizer with natural pesticide qualities.



Food security is becoming a critical issue as the global population continues to rise. We need to find more sustainable and efficient solutions for growing our food. At Enterra, we are harnessing the power of insects to feed and care for the world by upcycling nutrients from the waste stream. We are fortunate to have found a great partner in Wheatsheaf that shares in our vision of creating a more food-secure future
