Cycle Farms

Cycle Farms transforms food waste into insect-based animal feed : we are the future of animal feed in Africa.

Cycle Farms has developed and patented technology to produce protein from Black Soldier fly larvae. This is a breakthrough because it allows for local protein production anywhere in the world. Cycle Farms collects vegetable byproducts – waste from farms, agro-processors and markets - and feeds it to BSF larvae. After two weeks the larvae are rich in protein and ready for harvest. Cycle Farms processes the larvae into an insect meal that is an ideal replacement for fish and soy meal in animal feed formulations. Cycle Farms is the only insect company to vertical integrate with animal feed production.
