Insects for feed, your future need!


BY-entO is a business idea created by Francesco. He decided to develop a team involving five other professionals with different skills.
BY-entO wants to revolutionize the animal feed market in a sustainable way, through the technological innovation in breeding and transformation of insects.
Insects can be an interesting source of proteins in a world where people are rising and food will not be enough for all.
BY-entO will start its activity producing dried larvae of Tenebrio molitor which represents a complete nutrition for pets, offering a natural and healthy feed.
The interesting business idea of BY-entO is to valorize bio-waste of agri-business growing insects and enhancing the manure as fertilizer for plants.
Using insects for feed could be a fantastic alternative to reduce the environmental impact of protein production, through the rapid life cycle, high feed-convers.
