WHO WE ARE

Proti-Farm produces large quantities of sustainable, high quality insect ingredients for the food and pharmaceutical industry and is based in Ermelo, The Netherlands. The company history started in 1978 with the founding of Kreca. Kreca is amongst the most recognised and respected insect producers worldwide with in-house knowledge of and experience with the rearing of more than ten species of insects (different species of mealworms, grasshoppers, crickets, cockroaches etc). In 2015, Proti-Farm acquired all activities of Kreca and is currently in the process of scaling up the lesser mealworm larvae (Alphitobius diaperinus) for the food and pharmaceutical industry.

Our facilities will start to deliver large quantities of high grade insect products in 2017 and we plan to rapidly expand our facilities worldwide. End products are whole insects, protein powders (isolated, concentrated, hydrolysed) and (refined) lipids under the name of EntoPure. Proti-Farm has its own Research and Development centre in which research is executed on demand for external clients and continuous optimization takes place for our own products and facilities. Proti-Farm works closely together with top universities and technological research institutes worldwide.  This is done under strict quality and animal welfare standards.

As part of Proti-Farm, Kreca continues to deliver our high quality products and services in existing feed and food markets while Proti-Farm further aims to serve the international food ingredient and pharmaceutical industry with its innovative products and techniques.

Currently all our facilities are closed for tours.
