Proteine Resources

COMPANY

Proteine Resources (Kraków) – Proteine Resources intends to change the food chain through revolutionising the global fodder, food and agricultural market. The concept of vertical fully robotised zero-emission factories, not requiring any human component, processing biowaste into high quality protein, fat and insect fertilizer (frass) without using plastic, water, chemicals and farmaceuticals is our response to the greatest problems of humanity.

Based on a new level of AI-controlled factories, where an algorithm cooperates with a live insect colony and supervises every element of the process to deliver ongoing optimisation, was their vision that has become real. Now the vision of utilising insects as ‘protein of the new millennium’ becomes viable.
