DISCOVER 
OUR COMPANY

Nutrinsect is a biotech company with headquarters both in Italy and Spain which is specialized in alternative protein and nutrients production by breeding and industrial insect transformation. Nutrinsect provides a sustainable solution to address the organic waste increasing production and nutrient deficiency. We use insects as food waste bio-transformers. Through organic waste disposal and treatment, we obtain natural fertilizer rich in nutrients ideals to biological culture and insects protein used such as a nutrient source for animal feed. Nutrinsect wants to contribute to one of the biggest challenges in the world, ensuring adequate human nutrition for humans and animals in a sustainable and economic way. Our aim is to solve two major problems: the increase of production of organic waste and the lack of nutrients. Over 30% of the world's food is wasted and sent to landfills or composting operations where most of the nutrients are dispersed. On the other hand, feed producers are looking for sustainable alternatives to traditional sources of protein sources to feed the animals. 

Nutrinsect provides a sustainable solution for both problems using insects as bio-transformers of food waste in order to dispose and to treat organic waste. Once treated, these wastes can be used as natural fertilizers rich in nutrients for organic cultivation. The proteins of insects can be used as a nutrient source for animal feed.
