The food sustainability challenge

Animal meal

Demand for fish meal is expected to outspace supply by 5 million tons by 2024.


The world’s population is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050.

Plant meal

Demand for soya meal is expected to raise year on year.

Global food waste crisis


We lose or waste 30% of all food produced globally which equates to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes a year.


Annual cost of global food is estimated to be $990 billion way into landfills


Most of the food waste finds its and produces methane. Which is 25 times more potent green house gas than the CO2.

According to the FAO, if food wastage were a country, it would be the third largest CO2 emitting country in the world after China and the USA. The world urgently needs a sustainable solution to tackle food waste.


Benefits of insect based food & feed

  • Our mealworms feed on organic biproducts or ‘waste’, require minimal water (0.0006 L/kg), and grow at 5000x the acre yield of soy. Unlike fishmeal, our products contain no heavy metals or contaminants, because we control every step of the process.
  • Insects are part of the natural diet of both wild pigs and poultry. 
  • They constitute up to 10% of a bird’s natural nutrition, rising to 50% for some birds, such as turkeys.  
  • Molitor and Buffalo mealworms contain all the amino acids needed for optimal development, as well as having a protein content of 72%.   
  • In chickens, the consumption of insects can decrease pathogens and improve resistance to stress. 
  • In piglets, the consumption of insects can benefit health during the weaning phase.

Our products

Aqua feed

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing animal production. Fishmeal, the main source of food for aquaculture fish, is a premium nutritional ingredient. However, it is facing an unprecedented crisis due to the decrease in fish stocks. Depending on types of fish feeds, sinking feeds can be made on pelleting. Pellet mill can only make fast sinking feeds; however, we offer more products with characteristics ranging from fast sinking, slow sinking, and floating. The lack of sustainable solutions for aquaculture has a negative impact on prices and availability for consumers. Thus, at Larval our insect’s protein offer a premium alternative and are becoming a substantial resource.

Farm feed

On the 18th of August, 2021, the EU Commission adopted the decision to amend the ban on PAP use in pig and poultry feed, meaning that insect-based ingredients can now serve the sector. The decision is based on the scientific opinion from the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA). As the world’s biggest consumers of feed, this new regulation on pigs and poultry represents a huge breakthrough for the insect industry that Larval will fully embrace in its business activities.  Larval has identified the source and developed pig and poultry feed pellets that can complementarily meet the needs.
