WE ARE AN INNOVATIVE INSECT FARM SUSTAINABLY PRODUCING INSECT PRODUCTS FOR THE MASS
WE MAKE AFRICA FOOD SECURE, WITH THE HELP OF INSECTS.
By making insect products the new standard we are able to;
- Create future proof food and value chains.
- Provide affordable alternative protein sources for everyone.
- Upscale waste and improve the use of nutrients available on the planet.
- Reduce carbon footprint by offering more sustainable solutions.

Insectipro produces 11MT of dry BSF Larvae enough to feed
Insectipro produces enough fertilizer to cover

InsectiPro started its journey at the end of 2018. The founder (Talash Huijbers) comes from an agricultural family and as a newly graduate she was planning on farming fish in her home country Kenya. As it was promoted as the next frontier in the protein industry. While doing research she quickly found out the problems that the animal feed industry is facing in Kenya. Instead of joining the problem she decided to solve the problem for others. This research led to insects which led to the start of InsectiPro. InsectiPro now believes that insects are the missing piece in our food and value chains. Together with her team she is dedicated to improve the current food industry where inclusivity and insect products are the main drivers.
WE ARE BEYOND FARMERS, WE ARE FOOD CHAINGERS
Food-chain-gers, (noun) (plural), people who are dedicated to make a positive change within existing food and value chains. A combination of food- and value chains & changing.
WHERE MOST PEOPLE TRY TO GET RID OF INSECTS, WE FARM THEM ON A LARGE SCALE
They are a sole food source for many animals (livestock such as poultry, pigs, and fish) and are also harvested for human consumption all over the world (Globally, there are about 1900 edible insect species with 552 of these consumed in Africa).
Documented research (Rumpold and Schluter, 2013) highlights the nutritional benefits of insects as rich in protein (dry matter), dietary fiber, and beneficial fatty acids. They are a good sources of micronutrients such as iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorous. Besides that they have the capacity to enhance the immune system.
Insects have the ability to help us create circular food and value chains. They can grow on low quality organic waste and transform it back into high quality nutrients for the soil and the body.
By implementing insects we can tackle multiple problems in different industries as one. Find out the industries we are currently active in and what we are doing below:
