The Good Kitchen investee, Entocycle, were recently covered by TechCrunch! Entocycle are looking to solve the food chain conundrum with a source of protein. Black soldier flies to be specific. They're using black soldier flies to transform food waste into insect-based protein for the aquaculture and livestock industries. What does this mean? Maximum nutritional value. Minimal environmental impact.
“At the end of the day, we want to keep it simple. We have a box where we put food waste and baby larvae, leave it for one week, let the insects do the hard work and at the end of it we have fertilizer and protein,” says Keiran Whitaker, Founder & CEO of Entocycle
