Product Processing & Distribution 

Chapul Farms specializes in ensuring product quality, consistency, reliability, and transparency. 

Optimized Environment & Data

By co-locating the insect facilities with the feedstock, we maximize the bioregional benefits . Minimal transport means minimal energy and other resource use.

Black Soldier Fly

Black soldier flies (BSF) - hermetia illucens - are voracious eaters, consuming a wide range of organic materials.

Diet Decoded

Even though BSF are flexible eaters, performance can be optimized by balancing the energy they get from starches, sugars, and lipids and the digestibility of their protein.


BSF thrive on dry substrates that have been moistened or feedstock with a moisture content of up to 85 - 95%. This means many byproducts do not need to be dried before they can be used as feedstock.
