Larvatria manufactures antiparasitic organic fertilizer and antimicrobial insect proteins through an innovative biorefining process.

Working closely with scientists, researchers and engineers, Larvatria developed a sustainable circular economy process which eliminates agricultural pollution caused by manure while simultaneously producing essential nutrients beneficial to both plants and animals.

Utilizing the recycling power of millions of edible house fly larvae, manure is quickly transformed into a premium anti-parasitic organic fertilizer. Larvae are then, themselves, transformed into antimicrobial protein feed beneficial to animal health.

Larvatria actively uses these insects as natural catalysts for biorefining.

The consumption of beef, chicken, pork and fish around the globe continues to rise owing to an unprecedented population explosion combined with a remarkable increase in living standards in emerging countries.

Intensive livestock production monopolizes huge areas of arable land, consumes staggering amounts of water and depletes marine resources in order to transform soy, corn, oats, hay and fish into feed.

It accounts for about 14 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, more than half of which is caused by manure.

The rapid metamorphosis of manure into antiparasitic organic fertilizer by insect larvae provides a sustainable and cost-effective solution for the reduction of agriculture pollution.

Larvatria’s specialized house fly is a wonder of evolution perfectly suited to a particular function: recycling. Housefly larvae quickly sanitize, recycle and transform manure into rich antiparasitic organic fertilizer while feeding on it.

To do this, it generates powerful natural antibiotics, referred to as antimicrobial peptides, which enrich fertilizer and proteins.

Larvatria’s antiparasitic organic fertilizer is remarkably effective in intensifying plant growth resulting in thicker stems and increased seed yield.

Its antimicrobial insect proteins meals promote intestinal health and improve the immune system of livestock and pets.

Moreover, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO): Insects make very good food for animals. They are healthy and nutritious. Besides, they have been consumed for millions of years by all kinds of animals and fish. Because of their high protein content, insects could replace animal flours, cereals and oils in feed.

Larvatria was founded in 2012 to pave the way for the elimination of agriculture pollution caused by manure.

The Company’s work led it to test various hypotheses: why not feed thousands of housefly larvae with manure and transform it into fertilizer, since nature has been doing just that for millions of years? The larvae would then be harvested to produce protein flours.

Larvatria identified two types of flies with characteristics enabling them to consume and recycle this particular biomass. To feed themselves, their larvae destroy microorganisms from intestinal microbiota, evolution having created them with powerful weapons: antimicrobial peptides.

It was the birth of the Larvatria Process, which allows for the enrichment and commercialisation of a neglected biomass, the elimination of agriculture pollution and the production of antimicrobial insect protein.

Larvatria’s innovative business model combines an efficient insect, an abundant substrate, as well as an automated industrial process. It makes possible the sustainable and continuous production of high-quality biological fertilizer and insect proteins.

Substrate | Manure

It presents various environmental challenges in the form of greenhouse gases, phosphorus surplus and eutrophication of watersheds. It is inedible and its provisioning at a reasonable cost is unconstrained.

However, it constitutes a neglected biomass which only needs to be metamorphosed into nutritive and curative products with high added value by following a natural process, accelerated and industrialized by Larvatria.

Insect | Housefly

House Fly larvae possess the exceptional capacity to sanitize manure while feeding on it and to quickly transform it into a rich organic fertilizer.

Evolution has provided them with antimicrobial peptides that eliminate enterobacteria and enrich biofertilizer and proteins with sought after therapeutic qualities.

Industrial Process | Biorefining

Larvatria depollutes, refines and transforms manure into organic fertilizer, while feeding myriads of edible insects.

Larvatria, in the end, obtains 2 product lines: (1) antiparasitic organic fertilizer; (2) and, antimicrobial insect proteins.

House fly larvae are difficult to rear in industrial quantities – enormous amounts of eggs are necessary to obtain an industrial volume.

Over 6 years of research was conducted in order to properly address the collection and distribution of millions of house fly eggs.

The result was the development of Larvatria’s Automated Egg Collector rendering biorefining of manure on an industrial scale possible.

Larvatria’s antiparasitic biofertilizers are for horticulture, greenhouse and other specialized crops. Its antimicrobial insect protein meals and oils are for beef, chickens, pork, fish, dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles.

LARVAFertilizer is the result of the metamorphosis of composted manure enriched by millions of larvae, which add antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic peptides that strengthen plants.

LARVAProteins is a concentrate of farmed larvae that are defatted, crushed and dehydrated into a homogeneous whole protein, rich in essential amino acids and antimicrobial peptides.

LARVADry is composed of dehydrated farmed larvae that are washed and dried to produce high efficiency antimicrobial proteins.

LARVAOil is a larvae oil concentrate, naturally enriched with antimicrobial peptides.
