FarmInsect is an AgriTech start-up from Munich, working on a solution for farmers to produce insect larvae from harvest residues. Insects enable the decentralised and safe production of food in the EU through circular economy and are replacing soy and fishmeal with regional and sustainable insect protein. Farmers receive weekly batches of larvae and raise these as a protein source with proprietary insect systems. FarmInsect offers a machine and IoT system that makes the automated fattening of insects easy.
