OUR AG TECHNOLOGIES APPLIED IN LATIN AMERICA

2022 LAUNCH

We launched Amera Grubs with our U.S. pet industry team and advisors in 2022. We have onboarded an experienced team to start and scale a Black Soldier Fly operation in an ideal location and climate in the center of a major agricultural production region Colombia. We have launched our Phase 1 corporate office and production facility in Armenia.

2023 SCALE UP

We will be scaling up our Phase 1 reproduction and production operations to meet small-to-medium scale product requirements. This includes a systematic scale-up of a smaller version of our Phase 2 large scale operation. The laboratory, genetics team, and reproduction facility is designed to support the Phase 2 plant and operation long term. 

2024-2025 FULL SCALE

We will build our full scale Phase 2 operation with strategic partners on a circular economy campus. The campus will include key suppliers of fruit feedstock waste streams that will enable us to certify our operation as carbon neutral. With our partners, teams, and customers we will establish Latin America as the preferred source for insect protein production in the world.

OUR STORY

We are developing insect proteins & oils and natural fertilizers to create a more sustainable, climate-smart, and secure food system for the planet. We are focused on serving the $40B U.S. pet food market as well as key markets in Latin America.

OUR VISION

We believe that sustainable protein ingredients will drive innovations in global pet food markets for decades to come.  By using state-of-the-art controlled environment agricultural production technologies we can grow insect proteins in a sustainable circular economy. Combined with ongoing research and development, genetic analysis, improved BSF breeding techniques, and new product development, we can save the planet, one pet at a time.

OUR TECHNOLOGIES

These amazing insects turn plantains, avocados, and other fruit and vegetable feedstock into proteins for pet food and pet products is the core business. We harvest the BSF in the pre-pupal stage, then process 95% of the larvae in ovens, with 5% of the genetically optimal BSF returning to augment the breeding colony. Our key performance indicators include optimizing insect genetics, and feedstock nutrition, maximizing our production efficiency, and scaling up to large-scale production.
