One small larva, hundreds of possibilities

From Tenebrio molitor, 100% of its components are used in its different stages of development.

In addition to being a high-protein superfood, it is used in natural fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

This is just the beginning.

At Protiberia, we promote biotechnological research to find new ways to produce and market the mealworm.

Our network of Protifarms aims to meet the current and future demand for Tenebrio molitor.
