The French insect protein producer opened its first mealworm farm in Nebraska earlier in the year and anticipates the construction of another production site by the end of 2023.
As part of this expansion, Ÿnsect will explore “potential synergies” with flour milling and ingredient company Ardent Mills from Colorado.
Antoine Hubert, CEO and Co-founder of Ÿnsect, said the company aims to “help contribute to reinventing the global food system while also focusing on sustainability.”
“This exploration marks the start of potential collaborations between two key players within the global food industry,” he said.
Ÿnsect has three production sites, including the world’s largest vertical insect farm, where it transforms Buffalo and Molitor mealworms into sustainable ingredients to feed animals, plants, and humans.
