Did you know that when fish and other animals reincorporate insects into their diet, you too eat healthier?

Feeding Tenebrio molitor to fish and livestock in our food chain not only improves the lives of the animals but also contributes to making that fish and meat healthier for humans.

Did you know that Tenebrio molitor fertilizer protects plants from pests and disease?

The mealworm, in addition to being 100% organic and natural, favours the growth of crops. Because the Tenebrio molitor’s droppings (frass) have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, it also protects the plants from pests and pathogens.
