Crickets

Ecological Feed means Ecological Food

The growing process

We comply with the European standards for food health and safety and have a standardised growing process that we adhere to, resulting in a consistently high-quality product on an industrial scale.

Crickets

Production stage

  1. Beetls

    Step

    Incubation

    Entogourmet practices circular animal production which means we handle the whole process from incubation to growth and finally harvesting in a life cycle that lasts 31 days. Our nymphs are born in modern incubators then transferred to vertically stacked farms to maximise space.

  2. Worms

    Step

    Growth

    Crickets in the growth phase are fed a proprietary mix of ecologically sourced feed, fresh fruit and vegetables that are EU certified. We seek to continuously improve the contents of our cricket feed to maximise growth, and produce high-quality crickets consistently. The environment at our farm is strictly controlled and isolated from the exterior neutralising the threat of possible contaminants. Temperature, humidity, light, air quality and the oxygen content are managed within our controlled environments and optimised for cricket welfare and growth.

  3. Product packaging

    Step

    Preparation and processing

    Our crickets are harvested according to generally accepted industry guidelines and EU requirements. Entogourmet has invested in state-of-the-art pasteurisation, freezing, drying and packaging technology and methods. The final stage is to use food-grade packaging in transporting our products to its final destination.
