Los insectos, el nuevo sushi
French insect protein company Ÿnsect is seeking to enter the Japanese and Korean markets after securing
success in a national trade contest and signing a highprofile research partnership.
The firm was founded in 2011, and breeds Buffalo and Molitor mealworms for protein applications in
human food and supplements, fish feed, pet food, as well as plant fertiliser.
It currently operates a factory in France for its animal nutrition and fertiliser business and another facility
in the Netherlands for human nutrition.
“We focus on mealworm because it is easier to industrialise compared to other insects. Mealworms also have a
high protein content of about 72% in powder and have a low fat content, whereas beef or chicken can give about
25 to 30% protein,” said Bruno Grandsard, strategy committee member supporting Ÿnsect’s global development.
