Enterra — a privately held company specializing in the development and manufacture of sustainable insect-based feed ingredients for the fish, poultry and pet food industries — recently announced it has completed a major global funding round that will allow it to go ahead with the construction of three North American production facilities, including one near Balzac, Atla. The company already has a production facility in Langley, B.C.
Inside its 180,000-square-foot Balzac facility, Enterra will be raising black soldier fly larvae, an insect with a high protein and fat content that can be processed into animal feed.
The company boasts its larvae production process is completely sustainable, because the insects are fed with food waste that would otherwise be headed to landfills or compost operations. | READ MORE
