Beta Hatch: Bugs in the System – How Insect Farming Can Add Resilience to the Supply Chain
In order to meet the $8B protein gap that’s expected by 2025, Beta Hatch is growing mealworms to feed the world’s farmed animals and fish, replacing protein and fat in these diets and producing quality organic fertilizer in a virtually zero waste system. Its proprietary process can use a huge range of inputs, including mycotoxin contaminated feedstocks that would otherwise go to landfill or be diluted in the supply chain. The Beta Hatch technology portfolio includes a combination of genetic technology, diets, processes and equipment and the company is currently building what will be the largest mealworm producing facility for animal feed in North America.
