The first French farm to raise edible insects, that grow mealworms and crickets in the South of France. During its life, a mealworm will eat the equivalent of half a shaving of carrot, thus ensuring the best is delivered. The insects’ waste ends up in nearby gardens to help fruits and vegetables grow. The vegetable peels are also eaten by both mealworms and crickets. The egg cartons, where crickets live, finish on our compost pile, not in the bin. Short and sound supply chains – rather than importing insects – are implemented at Agronutris, using insects fed with local products.
Amusca enables companies worldwide to produce insect larvae locally using smart insect technology and services, so that they are able to produce high-quality animal nutrition, added-value products and biochemicals: clean, green and natural.
Amusca works with partners worldwide. Drawing on Amusca’s in-depth insect and product know-how, Amusca partners work side-by-side with customers to make the cutting-edge technology work to their advantage.
