Our research team led by Santos Rojo, focuses on studying dipterous insects and specifically Hermetia Illucens
BioflyTech is established as a Technology-Based Company of the University of Alicante Science Park
We developed several patents in the fields of feeding, breeding, self-harvesting of larvae and other auxiliary systems that represent the sector’s cutting-edge

Doctor in Natural Sciences of the Norwegian University of Life Science. With more than 30 years of experience throughout the value chain of the fish farming industry, especially salmon. First as R&D director in Biomar, and also as executive director of Biomar Chile and Director of Food in Marine Harvest, the Norwegian leader in salmon production
Larvae feed on low added value organic by-products and we obtain from the larvae biomass a high quality protein and rich functional fats
This high quality protein is appropriate for animal feed, and its production is fully sustainable. The functional fats allow for a healthy growth
The result of the production process is a 100% organic soil regenerator
Insects convert food into biomass more efficiently than most living organisms. they need fewer resources than other livestock to produce protein and fat
In a production environment that is entirely closed from the outside, it emits fewer greenhouse gases than any other type of livestock breeding
The biomass assimilates nutrients from a wide range of co-products derived from agribusiness production. their role in the bio-economy is fundamental
In a context of scarce natural resources, we supply high added value ingredients, unaffected by climate phenomena
Substantial improvement of the Conversion Index significantly increasing the sustainability of production in both economic and environmental terms
In 2013, the FAO published the book Edible Insects, underlining the need to incorporate them in animal and human diets, as a solution to deal with one of the world’s greatest challenges: how to feed more than 9.5 billion people in 2050.
In 2015, the United Nations approved the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. BioflyTech is committed to the goals that can be honoured with our production processes, and our impact in the economy.
In 2017, the EU’s Novel Food Regulation established the parameters for marketing certain insect species, among which the black soldier fly is particularly relevant due to its optimal nutritional composition.
