WEDA supplies feeding system for insect breeding facility

WEDA Hipromine 31 marchWEDA Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH is supplying the complete insect feeding system for the Polish feed producer HiProMine


The company from Robakowo near Poznan breeds insect-based proteins on an industrial scale using the black soldier fly. With WEDA’s new plant, 550 tonnes of substrate are produced and fed there every day.

The technology creates a food chain in which the insect forms a bridge between plant waste and sustainable animal feed.

The use of the soldier fly as a feed insect can thus make an important contribution in the future to feeding the growing world population in a resource-saving way. Compared to other feedstuffs, insects are the only source of protein for which the raw material can be utilised one hundred percent. Moreover, no waste is produced during the manufacture of animal proteins. On the contrary: during their growth, the larvae feed exclusively on organic waste. The soldier fly Hermetia illucens is also characterised by extremely rapid development, with larvae fattening in about seven days.

“In addition, the end products are free of antibiotics and genetically modified organisms,” said WEDA product manager Jens Feldhaus in favour of expanding the breeding method. In the insect feeding systems of HiProMine, the proven technologies of WEDA Dammann & Westerkamp are used for this purpose. Inexpensive, nutrient-rich and ecological protein source Insect-based feeds are currently already approved for domestic animals, poultry, pigs and aquaculture.

If the technology becomes established worldwide, insects have the potential to become an inexpensive, nutrient-rich and ecological protein source for all animal feed. Prof Dr hab Damian Jozefiak, one of the founders of HiProMine and professor at the Poznań University of Life Sciences, is very satisfied with the prospects and the cooperation so far, “With WEDA, we have found exactly the right technology partner who offers us the production security we need for the sustainable development of this business field,” he summed up.
