R&D ENTOFARM

Our R&D EntoFarm was ready for farming and processing of crickets already by 2018 where the main purpose was to do full-scale tests of cricket breeding in different circumstances where we have tried out different sizes of breeding boxes, shelters, temperatures, relative humidity levels and other environmental aspects to find the best and most cost-efficient way to breed crickets.

These tests were done for 12 months which gave us indispensable findings and results that we are bringing with us to the next generation of our EntoFarm.

The crickets and end products produced in our R&D EntoFarm was sold to mainly the EU, Japan and Thailand.

The learning and development from our R&D EntoFarm will now be used to scale up to the next generation – the EntoFarm, capable of at least 40 tonnes of dry products per year, to be constructed in 2022.

Our R&D EntoFarm is certified according to Good Agricultural Practices for Cricket Farm (GAPs), Good Hygiene Practices (GHPs), and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP).

GAPs are the basic environmental and operational conditions necessary for the breeding of safe crickets. The purpose of GAPs is to give logical guidance in implementing best management practices that will help to reduce the risks of microbial contamination of the crickets.

GHPs compliance is the first step towards establishing hygiene management and is implemented across our food processing chain. GHP compliance covers our minimum sanitary and hygiene practices for our processing unit, to ensure that our cricket food products are safe and suitable for human consumption.

GHPs is a required foundation to implement other food safety management initiatives, such as HACCP and ISO 22000.

HACCP is is an internationally recognized method of identifying and managing food safety related risk and, when central to an active food safety program, can provide our customers, the public, and regulatory agencies assurance that our food safety program is well managed.

It is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from breeding of raw crickets, procurement and handling, to processing of raw crickets, distribution and consumption of the finished product such as whole roasted crickets, cricket powder and CPG products. 

On top of these certifications, Global Bugs Asia is promoted by the Board of Investment (BOI) and we have also got a Seal of Excellence delivered by the European Commission, as the institution managing Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020.

The project proposal to the EU Framework was our EntoPark methodology for breeding crickets based on vertical farming under controlled environment.

Global Bugs is also a member of the Belgian Insect Industry Federation (BiiF) which is an  international branch association, originally founded in Belgium. It brings together actors of the edible insects market, both in terms of human consumption (FOOD) and animal consumption (FEED). Biif is also an applicant for the approval of the house cricket on the EU market. A summary of the dossier can be found using this link
