INSECTS PROVIDING ALTERNATIVE PROTEIN TO FEED FARM ANIMALS AND PETS

Insects: a new natural, sustainable and responsible resource for feeding pets.

Our insects are suitable for the production of conventional pet food (dogs and cats) but also for feeding New Pets (NPN): rodents, birds, reptiles, etc. as well as for farm animals.

EDIBLE INSECTS FOR EXOTIC AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS

Our company specializes in breeding top-quality edible insects for feeding exotic animals such as reptiles, amphibians or fish.

We breed crickets, locusts, flour moths, woodlice, etc.

The insects are fed with natural products and are a guarantee of a high intake of proteins essential for the nutrition of pets.

ORGANIC FERTILIZERS FOR A MODERN AND ECO-SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

To ensure a more sustainable future of agriculture, it is possible to produce 100% natural fertilizers thanks to the use of insect frass.

This innovative, ecological solution improves crop nutrition by revitalizing soils and promoting plant growth.

Inef is a specialized insect-farming company established in 2018 in Italy. Edible insects can be used for producing meal for protein feed for domestic and farm animals, and their frass (excreta) can be employed to produce fertilising compost and pellets.

WHY CHOOSE INEF?
The insects we farm are healthy and resistant, and are fed by following a balanced diet of cereals, fruit and vegetables usually at 0 food miles, and with products not chemically treated.

LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
At Inef, we uphold eco-sustainability and are proud of our extremely low environmental impact which we achieve with advanced production and processing techniques. Safe farming methods produce healthy, high-quality proteins in compliance with current regulations.

INNOVATIVE AND FAR-SIGHTED PROJECT
While current legislation in Italy does not yet allow insects to be sold for human consumption, the market for edible insects appears as an opportunity in a sector still in its infancy: human food of the future could well include insects for several good reasons.
Insects are fully environment-friendly and are an excellent source of high-quality protein, fibre and minerals such as Calcium and Iron (over twice as much iron as spinach), and of vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids.
