About FarmInsect

FarmInsect is an AgriTech start-up from Munich, working on a solution for farmers to produce insect larvae from harvest residues.

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.
