The Global Protein Dilemma

Aquaculture and poultry production rely heavily on fishmeal and/or soya for their feed requirements.

Most caught fish are used in the production of fishmeal. By 2050, at current rates of consumption, there may be no fish left in the seas.

Soya production requires vast tracts of land, that could be more effectively used to produce food for ever-expanding human populations.

Current commercial sources of protein are unsustainable -
we can’t keep on harvesting one source of protein to grow another.

Nutrient Recycling

AgriProtein KSA bio-converts food and other organic waste into natural and sustainable protein, for the animal feed industry – through the industrialization of BSF (black soldier fly) larvae production.

Within 15 years we will consider it as normal to recycle waste
nutrients as we do paper, glass, metal and plastics today.

Insect-based proteins provide a commercially viable, sustainable ‘complete protein’, with similar protein and amino acid 

levels to fishmeal – while recent studies demonstrate considerable advantages over cheaper plant proteins

(16.45% reduction in total energy flow, and 25.03% gain in renewability as compared with soya, in poultry production*). 

AgriProtein offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative for an agricultural industry facing escalating challenges. 

By recycling waste into protein, AgriProtein not only reduces the environmental impact caused by large-scale protein production – 

we also have a positive environmental profile.
