Who are they?

Innovafeed contributes to the construction of a sustainable food system by developing a pioneering and innovative industry: the breeding and processing of insects (Hermetia Illucens fly).
Their mission:

  • To have a positive overall environmental impact based on circular economy and inspired by natural food chains;
  • To generate territorial economic dynamism : in order to feed and raise their larvaes, they are co-located with agro-industrial partners that provide them with co-products and low footprint energy.
    Incorporated in 2016, Innovafeed manufactures and sells 3 different insect-based products:
  • For a high-quality aquaculture respectful of animals’ natural diets, insect protein is obviously the best fish feed, particularly for salmon and trout that you would fly fish in a river! 🐟
  • For a sustainable farming respectful of animal welfare, insect oil is efficient for feeding animals like poultry and pig 🐤 
  • For a regenerative agriculture respectful of soils’ integrity, insects feces are leveraged as an efficient organic fertilizer  🌱
