Beetle Genius is a European company that designs and manufactures organic dietary components with high added nutritional value for fish farms and pet food. These products draw on the life cycle of the mealworm, which is the larva of the cosmopolitan beetle Tenebrio molitor . Our production is scaled to ensure the supply and quality of new sources of protein for our clients – namely, mealworm protein. The production sites will form part of an ecosystem supply chain that aligns with contemporary economic, social, environmental, and technological expectations. The company combines expertise in agronomy, digital technology, organic foods, animal husbandry, flour milling, industrial processes and logistics, while integrating an innovative and sustainable local approach.
Today, the most important challenge facing society is finding and creating new sources of protein, to feed an ever-increasing population in an environmentally friendly way. Thanks to their exceptionally high protein content, mealworms are a perfect food substitution, since little space is needed to breed them and, through them, leftover cereals, fruits and vegetables can be recycled. Furthermore, the production process is particularly appealing because it leaves almost no carbon footprint and requires little energy consumption. Our vision also involves the creation of a new collaborative and equitable industry with a sustainable local approach, based around the biology of this insect, the local agricultural ecosystem and fish farming.
Beetle Genius’ virtuous circle is based on the natural symbiosis between the farmer and the mealworm. This process can be replicated and adapted to any ecosystem. As a result, Beetle Genius’ mission is to allow fish farmers, pet owners and crop farmers, especially those who use fertilizers, to secure their supply chain sustainably and environmentally, through highly efficient means that leave behind no carbon footprint. In doing so, Beetle Genius fosters reciprocity with our earth.
