Locusts offer a viable food source for many people in Africa and Asia, and most recently in America and Europe. However, since wild supply sources are limited and only available four weeks out of the year, this results in high prices. Our cutting-edge locust farming technology provides these populations an efficient protein source of high-quality locust year-round. Our locusts can help feed the world!
Locust are one of nature’s most efficient protein sources. When comparing locust to beef, they reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 98.8%, water consumption by 1,000-folds, arable land usage by 1,500-folds and 100% of the animal is being used as in food products compare to less than 50% in other animals (source: FAO).
Since no fertilizers and pesticides are used during the locust growing process, the environmental impact such as contamination of the water, air and soil sources is minimal.
Biblical Protein and Hargol FoodTech’s locust can provide an answer to global food security and health challenges.
We are collaborating with Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Economics to bring our technology to all corners of the globe.
