More than 30% of the world’s food supply is wasted and sent to landfills or composting facilities before reaching the consumer, a considerable loss of valuable complex nutrients. At the same time, rising global demand for high quality nutrient sources such as fish and poultry places increased pressure on food supply and production costs.
The company’s patent-pending Hatchery process increases global nutrient supply and simultaneously reduces the growing pressure on landfills and composting. Enterra’s Hatchery process uses a local beneficial insect to recover nutrients from traceable feedstock. We receive feedstock, sourced from grocery stores and food distributors, and up-cycle the complex nutrients into sustainable protein and oils, to feed fish and livestock, and a natural organic fertilizer used for soil conditioning to increase crop yields.
