Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) is a revolutionary insect species that provides solution to feed industry with an alternative meal source. Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) can grow on any organic waste and convert the manure into high protein and lipids. As it is rich in protein (40-44%) and lipid (7-36%), it is emerged as the cheaper protein alternative source for animal feed applications. Moreover, high quality chitin can be derived from defatted BSF exoskeleton, which is also one of the fastest growing (CAGR +19%) biopolymers.

The growth of the global black soldier fly market is increasing mainly due to expanding global meat demand. Furthermore, growing aquaculture industry, increasing demand from the animal feed industry for alternative proteins due to rising prices of soymeal, growing government support for the use of insect meal in livestock feed, and growing investment by key players in the BSF industry are the factors driving the black soldier fly market.
