Protifarm leverages forty years of insect breeding and rearing research and development from our sister company, Kreca, an established European leader in insect production. Using this expertise as a blueprint, Protifarm was founded in 2015 and has created the world’s first and largest vertical farm for breeding the Alphitobius diaperinus, better known as the buffalo beetle.
Our facility in Ermelo is fully operational and can deliver enough protein to feed a small city, all with the footprint of less than a parking lot. This first facility offers a template for cultivating nutrient-dense buffalo larva anywhere in the world, delivering a healthier planet with healthier inhabitants.
