Part time Job Description
To feed tomorrow’s world. We aim to be a leading global producer of natural, sustainable, high-quality insect formulated products that serve as a unique source of protein for animal nutrition and fertiliser for crops.
Our vision is to contribute to a more sustainable food system that is in balance with our natural ecosystem where insects play a vital part in the solution. To do this, we are transforming food waste into protein, oil and fertiliser with insects.
Why Insect Feed Technologies?
We’re tackling one of humanity's greatest challenges in a brand new way with insects. Food production must double by 2050 to feed the global population, but a third of food produced today ends up in landfills. We are here to change that.
Our goal is to produce high-quality insect products without charging a premium for sustainability. To do so, we’re always looking for talented humans who are interested in reshaping the global food system alongside us.
You’ll be joining a small, rapidly growing and spirited team of solution-focused, practical, problem solvers who thrive on constant progress. We believe that by finding the people with the same purpose, we can tackle the whole world’s problems better, together. You’ll be doing work that matters to you, Insect Feed Technologies and the world.
What we do
We take food waste and transform it into sustainable, all-natural protein and oil for pet food, poultry and aqua feed, and nutrient-rich organic fertilisers.
