The vision of inVALUABLE is to create a sustainable resource-efficient industry for animal protein production based on insects. The partners span the entire value chain and include entrepreneurs, experts in biology (entomology and nutrition), biotech, automation, processing and food tech and safety, as well as an international leading insect producer. This interaction of competences is key to lifting insect production to an industrial level. The project operates at an applied research level with focus on three main areas: 1) biological knowledge of the production organisms (e.g. production environment, dietary needs and health); 2)automation and monitoring of production; and 3) product documentation of safety, nutrition and health.
