From waste to food. We strive to become the premier supplier of insect-derived animal feed from food waste in the Americas.
To feed ever more people and reduce growing waste volumes. By converting waste back into food, Enthos contributes to establishing a circular food economy and more sustainable food production.
ENTHOS 1 will be the first commercial scale plant in Latin America
dedicated to use insects to upcycle organic waste into food grade protein
and oil, products with a ready market in the animal feed industry.
The conversion of waste to food is achieved via the larvae of the Black
Soldier Fly, which consumes the waste and is harvested before fully
maturing and then processed into animal feed ingredients.
We can leverage the competitive advantage of producing in Colombia thanks to the expertise and experience the Enthos’ partner team has in the most important aspect for successful implementation: The operational and engineering component of processing organic residues and animal protein and the nutritional science behind creating high-quality animal feed.
Black Soldier Fly larvae are ferocious consumers of food waste and grow over 200 times in a feeding period of 15 days.
The mature larvae serve as the basis for the following products:
ENTHOS® Larvaes: Premium whole dried BSF larvae for higher end products and special producers.
ENTHOS® Meal: Meal with minimum protein content of 52%, high digestibility, excellent amino-acid profile.
ENTHOS® Oil: Omega 3 Oil with high energy contribution to diet.
ENTHOS® Fertilizer: Mineral rich for use in agriculture.
The Enthos’ founders team derives its strength from their multidiciplinary background of engineering, animal nutrition, business development and financial structuring.
The design of the project is based on years of research of our interdisciplinary team. Our team and advisory board counts on extensive expertise in areas such as entomology, environmental and mechanical engineering, veterinary medicine and zootechnics.
