Enterra completes major global funding round to build new insect production facilities in North America
https://globenewswire.com/news-release/ ... erica.html

Excerpt:
LANGLEY, British Columbia, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the addition of three major funding partners, Enterra Feed Corporation announced today that it is on track to complete construction of new facilities in Alberta (2019), British Columbia (2020) and the Midwestern U.S. (2021). Each plant will cost approximately $30M to build, substantially increasing the company’s production of its insect-based feed ingredients which are a sustainable substitute for traditional, resource-intensive ingredients for animal feed.

Bug-growing facility will buzz into Balzac next spring

Excerpt:
CALGARY—Balzac will wriggle with bugs next spring thanks to a company keen on getting rid of food waste — and turning the critters into animal food.

Enterra Feed Corporation, based in Langley, B.C., is planning a 180,000-square-foot facility for next spring. It will grow “billions” of black soldier flies for use in animal feed, according to Victoria Leung, the company’s vice-president of operations.

Don’t bug out: Giant fly larvae factory is coming to Alberta By Jennifer Blair
https://www.albertafarmexpress.ca/2018/ ... o-alberta/

Excerpt:
Despite the many benefits of insects as a feed source, regulatory hurdles have slowed the growth of the industry, and right now, Enterra is one of only a few companies that are mass producing insects for the feed industry.

“There are a few other players out there who are also trying to produce insects on a large scale, but supply right now in the industry is constrained because we are relatively new,” said Leung.

“It’s going to take some time for us to gain scale.”

That scale-up will start next year for Enterra, with the construction of the $30-million facility in Balzac. Two similar facilities will follow — Vancouver in 2020 and Ohio the following year. Once completed, they will produce commercial-level quantities of premium protein for the aquaculture, pet food, and livestock industries across North America.

“The demand is gigantic. We’re really seeing the market take off with our insect products being a novel protein source,” said Leung. “The feed industry is massive, and if we do see the trend for human food take off in the insect space, that’s something we’ll be targeting as well.

“The possibilities are endless. We’re just getting started.”
