“For most startups, at the end of the day you press save and the hard disk won’t change until tomorrow or if you go away for a week and when you come back, everything is exactly as how you’ve left it. That’s not the case for when insects are involved, you have to be a bit more on the ball and keep them in control.”

With a background in chasing software bugs, our founder Leo decided to chase real, living bugs instead. It’s a whole new challenge when working with insects. We have developed data-driven Insect=Tech: technology, software and IoT to ensure consistency and control of our production processes. The R&D bioreactor for example allows us to continuously measure and influence 10 different parameters of the larvae’s growth and thereby formulating optimised process ‘recipes’ for different waste materials as insect feedstocks.
