population

Protein production has to cope with growing world population.

Problem

Environmental challenges

88 mln. of food is wasted every year in Europe.

(European Commission, 2016)

1.3 bln. more then
one-third of the world's food production is lost.

85% arable land is already in use.

15%-25% of greenhouse gases emissions are due to farming activities.

(FAO)

Problem

Aquaculture challenges

33% of caught marine fish are transformed into fishmeal for aquaculture.

(FAO, 2018)

21.6% of soymeal are imported to the European Union each year, an attempt to provide necessary protein to farm animals.

(FranceAgriMer)

22 mln. of global marine stocks were overfished in 2015.

(FAO, 2018)

23% global aquaculture production increase, representing 19 mln.t by 2030

(FAO, 2021)

Problem

Pet food challenges

25%-30% of environmental impacts due to animal production are due to PetFood.

(Okin, 2017)

20% of the worldwide meat and fish consumption is used in PetFood.

(The Guardian, 2019)

22% of the global number of cat owners is expected to increase by 22% between 2018 and 2022. For dog owners, this rise should reach 18%.

(The Economist, 2019)

Entor tech contributes

Securing sustainable and effective use of resources in the production

Reduce the amount of food wasted

Promotion of sustainable consumption and regenerative agriculture

Natural products like protein meals, lipids, and puree products are sustainable and nutritious for humans and pets

Substitute environmentally damaging protein- and fat sources

Products

Protein meal

Benefits

Balanced amino acid profile.

Very good digestibility (>85%).

Highly palatable.

Adequate techno-functional properties.

Sample applications

In pet food products, given its nutritional profile and hypoallergenic properties.

In fish feed conversion rate, and better gut health.

Shrimps feed as an attractant for better feed intake.

In broiler and pig feed for better nutrient digestion and satisfactory productive performances.

Insect lipids

Benefits

High in lauric acid that has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Easily digestible source of energy.

Naturally palatable.

Simple integration into products.

Sample applications

In piglet feed for improved feed intake and better gut health.

In broiler feed with satisfactory productive performances and overall meat quality.

In cosmetics and detergents as an alternative to animal or vegetable fat.

Frass

Benefits

High organic matter (>85%) with nitrogen and minerals.

Contains chitin that improves the defense mechanisms of plants.

Safe and ready to be applied on the field.

Sample applications

In soil amendments for farms, gardens, horticulture, and greenhouse.

In low fertile soil (acid and sandy soil) with satisfactory results.

In crop production for higher yields.
