We are pleased to announce that Ÿnsect has acquired Protifarm, the global leader in mealworm ingredients for human applications. Their joint offering will accelerate manufacturing capabilities with a 3rd production site, as the company moves to deliver on its long-term strategy to offer a natural, #healthy and long-term #sustainable solution to the accelerating consumption of protein. Following the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) deeming mealworms safe for human consumption this January, Ÿnsect is fast-tracking its impact in the alternative protein sector, by expanding into the market of #food ingredients derived from #insects.
“We are very excited to welcome Protifarm into our family. Protifarm is a compelling strategic fit for Ÿnsect, perfectly matching our long-term goals and values. Acquiring Protifarm is a strategic next step for us, strengthening Ÿnsect’s leading position in the global market.” Antoine Hubert
“The evolution of a more sustainable and healthier intake of nutrition is only at its beginning, but the demand for products meeting these standards is set to grow exponentially in the coming years. The consolidation of Protifarm’s leading position in insect-based human premium food ingredients will expand our scale to meet this demand globally.” Tom Mohrmann
