Through cooperation with nature and one another, we can replace harmful food production with one that regenerates life.
Instead of taking minor steps toward a circular economy, we use insects to CLOSE the loop and unleash the true power of circularity.
Instead of painting a picture of environmental despair, we offer a positive solution - an opportunity to recapture and upcycle would-be-wasted nutrients into premium feed and soil-healing frass while creating jobs, profit, and future food security.
The challenges we face are complex, as are often the solutions. We want to tell the basic elements of the story - chapter one is about circularity.
Defining Circular Systems
Circular agriculture focuses on using minimal amounts of external inputs, closing nutrient loops, regenerating soils, and minimizing the impact on the environment.
It enables us to feed more of the world while reducing energy, food, and water waste.
Insects Close The Loop
Insects consume and upcycle nutrients previously destined for landfills, restoring biodiversity to soils and gut microbiomes.
These solutions lead to regenerative economic outcomes that create security, produce jobs, improve health, save money, facilitate mobility, eliminate hunger, prevent pollution, restore soil, clean rivers, and more.
By integrating insect farms next to organics waste streams, we eliminate “waste,” recreating the conditions found in nature where food is eaten by insects and upcycled into essential nutrients for other animals.
