The Haaring family, owner of the Dorset Group, is proud to announce the start of a new company in sustainable insect production.
The new company, Winsect, will introduce a worldwide unique system for the farming of mealworms for insect protein production.
Insect production is regarded as a more sustainable way of producing protein, due to its low emissions, low land, feed conversions efficiency and excellent possiblities for circular and vertical farming.
First farm with unique system
The first farm has been developed breeding mealworms on automatic belts with an automatic feeding system
- no crates
- no robots
- low on labour costs
- low on production costs
The farming system will solve the problem of high production costs for mealworms, which will make mealworm production economical and mealworm products accessable for new markets.
The size of the farm is ideal for a regional / local protein production with the use of local waste streams.
In the coming months we will keep you informed about the progress of the farming. The next farm is scheduled to start construction in july 2021.
The mealworm breeding technology development is supported by Regio Achterhoek
