Industrializing Insect Farming Within a Regenerative Food System
With 30% of the world’s crop production being used to feed livestock, and with feed making up 50% of the cost of meat, the need for a sustainable and nutritious animal feed alternative is more apparent than ever.
Enter the mealworm, a digestive powerhouse, so effective in fact, that it’s the only known species able to biodegrade polystyrene! Beta Hatch mealworms feed on organic pre-consumer food by-products, converting food waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill into feed-grade protein.
Mealworms provide a protein-dense feed ingredient alternative for pet food, poultry, and aquaculture, with a complete mineral profile and highly controlled production. The main waste product in mealworm production, frass, is also a high-value fertilizer with applications in soil regeneration.
Thanks to its hub-and-spoke business model, Beta Hatch can produce feed near to where it is consumed, reducing shipping distances, lowering costs and decreasing the environmental impacts of long supply chains.
