Nutrition Technologies is an insect-as-feed company who manufactures Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) to produce sustainable high-grade proteins and oils for use as animal feed ingredients.
Nutrition's mission is to revolutionise the agriculture sector with the integration of insect products on a mass scale - as nature always intended.
Nutrition Technologies was founded in 2015 by Nick Piggott and Thomas Berry. The company is headquartered in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, with supporting sites in the UK, Vietnam and Singapore.
Nutrition is creating a commercial replica of the natural decomposition process, using their proprietary growth inoculants and black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens) to turn low-grade crop & food waste into highly sought after animal feed ingredients and biofertilisers.
Nutrition's two hectare production facility in Johor, Malaysia, bioconverts several hundreds of tonnes of organic waste every week. The facility produces functional proteins and oils, which have bioactive compounds that efficiently improve animal growth performance and health outcomes.
Nutrition has conducted multiple trials of their products on fish, shrimp, poultry, piglets and pets, with significant results. Their novel biofertiliser products improve soil health while naturally increasing plant resistance to disease, reducing the need for chemical pesticides.
Nutrition Technologies is backed by Openspace Ventures, PTT Ventures, Sumitomo Corporation, ING Sustainable Investments, Spring SEEDS Capital, Explora Capital, Mandala Capital, Alpha Founders Capital, Nullabor, Hera Capital, and others. The company raised $20M in new financing on Sep 20, 2022. This brings Nutrition Technologies' total funding to $34M to date.
