Transforming organic waste into food through bioconversion using an insect.


The generation of organic waste is an issue that worries us, in Colombia, 8 million tons of organic waste are generated each year that end up in landfills related to environmental and public health problems.
But, imagine being able to transform this organic waste into food using a small insect?
At BEFLY we do it, we promote the concept of circular economy by transforming organic waste into food with the help of the Black Soldier Fly, an insect with the capacity to transform organic waste into an ideal protein alternative for animal feed for pigs, poultry, fish and even pets. BEFLY is the future of animal nutrition.
