Insect protein for a more eco-friendly future

More than half of all consumed seafood globally comes from fish farms. 

Fish farms’ reliance on fishmeal has led to overfishing, jeopardizing human food security and aquatic ecosystems.

The use of insect proteins can offer a sustainable and more eco-friendly alternative, significantly reducing our reliance on fishmeal.

Our little BSF converts low-grade by-products into highly nutritious, functional ingredients while having very low requirements for space, land, and water. This process results in a lower carbon footprint compared to the conventional production of animal and plant nutrition, while preserving our Earth’s biodiversity.


At Entobel, we recognize that a healthy and thriving ecosystem is fundamental to the sustainability of all civilizations and economies. That’s why we are dedicated to operating in a way that respects the sustainable goals set by the United Nations and actively incorporates them into our daily practices. 


Alternative proteins will be needed to feed the growing population.


Entobel upgrades low-value by-products and agricultural side streams to high-value proteins and oil. 


H-Meal helps reduce the reliance on wild fish for fish meal production, with each kg of H-Meal saving 4 kg of wild fish.


Insect meal reduces the demand for soybeans, which results in lower land use and less deforestation. 

Life Cycle Assessment

H-Meal has a significantly lower carbon footprint than conventional protein sources

We performed an LCA on our process in cooperation with Blonk Consultants. Thanks to our strategic location in the tropics, and the availability of local by-products, our insect meal outbeats conventional protein sources in terms of CO₂ emissions, and land and water use.

More info about our LCA is available on request.

Dedicated to advancing
sustainable practices

Entobel is continuously testing new low-value substrates to improve economics and sustainability. With technological advances and scale, the carbon footprint of H-Meal will reduce even further.
