Cargill and Innovafeed have announced that it is extending its partnership from three years to ten years in an effort to renew the companies’ commitment to developing insect meal in aquafeed.

The agreement combines Innovafeed’s expertise in formulating insect ingredients and Cargill’s global animal nutrition capabilities to scale up the use of insect ingredients in multiple types of animal feed. Insect-based feed has become a competitive alternative to other sources of protein at all levels, including nutrition, production, and sustainability.

Cargill said in a statement that this partnership is also part of its SeaFurther Sustainability Initiative to reduce its CO2 emissions in the aquaculture industry.

“A contract of this size and scope for insect ingredients in aquafeed is a first in our industry and marks a major milestone in favour of more sustainable and efficient animal feed, thanks to novel ingredients and insects more specifically,” said Clément Ray, Innovafeed’s co-founder and CEO.
