Startup aims to help farmers start raising insects

Jul 21, 2020 at 09:21 AM CST

FarmInsect co-founder Wolfgang Westemeier doesn’t want to sell farmers insect meal. He wants to see farmers around the world do what they do best, and start raising insects of their own. The 2-year-old German startup is the latest in a series of companies to raise a significant round of funding on the promise of making insect meal a mainstream animal feed ingredient. But while most of their competitors plan to raise the insects themselves, selling the finished insect meal, FarmInsect is taking a different approach on the belief that farms, not factories, are the future of agriculture.
