Protix produces, processes and supplies high-quality insect products. By facilitating nature’s most formidable force, we will be part of the solution to the protein crisis. Protix employees are like ants, they are strong and collaboratively create formidable structures. Learn more about how our high-quality ingredients and where we are active.
Inspired by nature’s greatest upcycler, Protix was founded in 2009 from the idea that insects play a pivotal role in nature: we take low grade organic waste and quickly recycle it into high quality protein, lipids and micro-nutrients. What an opportunity to face the world’s challenges of the 21th century!
In the original natural diet of our livestock insects are a key component. So why import soy from overseas or empty the seas for fishmeal, if we can feed our animals their natural diet in an economically viable and sustainable way?
Protix took up this challenge and succeeded to make insects and insect derived nutrients the obvious sustainable alternative for imported soy, fishmeal and other controversial ingredients. We have brought insect production from curiosity to a commercial industry and already serve the animal feed industry and develop food applications that consumers will embrace.
The best part of this? Insects are grown on plant-based organic waste streams and insect breeding requires little water. So insect-based nutrients can be easily accessible everywhere on the planet. Moreover: first tests prove that feeding our livestock insects increases their health and in the long run can reduce the use of antibiotics in the agrifood industry.
