With our growing world population we are placing Earth’s natural resources under severe pressure. One of our most pressing challenges will be to feed everyone a balanced and nutritious diet while keeping our effects on the environment to a minimum.

Insects as an ingredient for animal feed. Turning food waste into high quality animal protein meal, lipids and organic fertiliser.

Protix is a highly technological and data driven insect producer based in the Netherlands, with feed products in over 12 countries, ranging from pig and poultry to pet food specialties. It has four products — feed ingredients Protix Protein X, Protix Lipid X, Protix Chitin X, and a fertilizer Protix Flytilyzer X — which are all currently derived from Black Soldier Fly (BSF). It is also moving into the food sector.

Insects are increasingly seen as a viable and low-impact protein alternative, because they can be reared on waste and are much more resource efficient versus other sources of protein and feed such as soy, corn, forage fish and meat.

The diversity of applications for insect ingredients spans from material science to pet food, feed and food. With their clients, Protix uses sustainable insect ingredients to unlock novel features in familiar products.

Protix is world leading when it comes to technological know-how and potential to scale due to its modular approach to factory building.

Key Differentiator
