It all started in a garage in the north of Leipzig. We, the founders Kai Hempel, Dr. Jonas Finck and Henrik Reichstein had the vision of a sustainable source of animal protein for the animal feed industry.
With the data obtained from the experimental garage set up, a technological grant by the SAB was applied for. With this, the proof of concept from our business plan could be implemented. Due to the participation of the local Investor, the Golzern Holding GmbH, the funding of the Pre Seed Phase was certain. At the new location in the south of Leipzig, we developed the first phase of our pilot plant with support of our strong partners. The conversion of a former pellet plant into a modern insect breeding plant began in march 2018. In the beginning of 2020, KAURI CAB GmbH also became an investor. Have a look at our current construction progress under News.
Significant feature is the modular construction with shipping containers. More Information you can find under plant development.
After the succesful provision of the proof of concept, the construction phase started. The skaling to industrial scale takes place directly here, in the pilot plant. This is made possible because of the close collaboration of our investors, the bank, fundings of the SAB, the LIFE funding program of the European Union and, of course, the hard work of our fast growing team.
Large plans require a strong Team. If you would like to become part of our motivated team, please send us your details.
