EDINBURGH, U.K. - May 9, 2023 - PRLog -- Novel proteins derived from insects are gaining traction among investors and entrepreneurs for their attractive environmental and economic business models. Unlike traditional livestock, insects require less land, water, and feed to grow. They are also a rich source of essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals and, in some cases, like aquaculture, they are a more natural ingredient in diets than vegetable counterparts. Among insect proteins, those derived from Black Soldier Flies (BSFs), scientifically known as Hermetia Illucens, are emerging as one of the most interesting to  institutional investors. The concept of insect farming is (theoretically) simple – breed, rear, and harvest insects to process them into end-products for the wider agri/aqua food chain, including feed, pet food, and human nutrition products.

In a world where 40% of the food, on average, goes to landfills or into other waste streams, BSF provides an attractive solution to the problem. BSF can be fed onsite waste from other food processes, recycling organic waste into high-value end-products used by the same industries to produce other products, minimizing the use of new raw materials. It's circular economy in action!

Insect Farming Industry Key Players

Beta Bugs Ltd realised that there was a need for a publication such as Beta Buzz to be able to bring the insect farming industry together and ensure accessibility for those looking to enter this rapidly developing market. The previous issues of Beta Buzz were greatly received and welcomed by the insect farming and agri-food industry, being hailed as valuable resources for anyone involved or interested in the sector. Following on from the response of the first two issues of Beta Buzz, the third issue was created to continue bridging the gap between businesses and customers to streamline the process and ensure a clear route to market for interested parties. Therefore, Beta Buzz #3 maintains its place in the industry by continuing to drive the message further afield, raising awareness of relevant technology and service providers in the insect farming value chain.

Tying in to the above, it was also important to feature industry perspectives within Beta Buzz #3 from a consumer facing angle from the likes of retail giant Tesco, highlighting how they see insect farming from a feed sustainability angle, which will help to reduce their carbon footprint within the retail supply chain.
