In 2016 Aude Guo, Bastien Oggeri, and Clément Ray created Innovafeed to contribute to the construction of tomorrow’s sustainable food system. To do so, they choose to develop a unique and pioneering technology to rear and transform the Hermetia illucens fly for animal and plant nutrition, thus offering alternatives to the fishmeal and vegetable oils used in fish and animal feed.
6 years later, Innovafeed represents:
- More than 350 passionate employees
- The largest insect production capacity in the world with 2 production sites in operation, and a 3rd one announced in the United States
- €450M of secured financing
- A pioneering approach from farm to fork with the launch of 3 insect-powered value chains: trout in December 2018, poultry in June 2020 and pork in February2021.
