The company

MUTATEC is a pioneer in the production of insects for animal feed in Europe. Based in Cavaillon, its project is to build and operate industrial insect breeding farms. In a logic of circular economy, these farms make it possible to valorize food losses (unsold fruits and vegetables, agricultural co-products) to produce insect proteins, oils and ingredients for animal feed. MUTATEC's innovative solution is supported by a dynamic, committed and multicultural team of about twenty people. Backed by major players in the ecological transition and agriculture, MUTATEC operates its first industrial farm in Cavaillon. We plan to roll out this model in France and abroad.
