Food insect revolution from Finland!

The whole concept is modular, ranging in size from small one part-time farmer’s enterprises to major size farms with tens of employees. NIE Ltd makes almost any building suitable for insect farming. NIE also offers required services for starting and successfully running a complete farm. The target is to enable people to farm insects globally!

Mr. Santtu Vekkeli is the CEO-inventor and founder of Nordic Insect Economy Ltd. Most of the tools and machines related to the company are basic inventions by him. His interest in food processing started during his studies at the University of Helsinki, where he obtained his Bachelor degree in Food Science. Since then he has found his passion in explaining the insect food business and theory. He believes that insects will be a significant contributor in global future food systems. Reasons to believe so arise from many advantages of insect farming when compared to traditional livestock. Insects need relatively small amount of water and feed. They cause only little greenhouse gas emissions and can be farmed indoors with great efficiency. This all combined with the good taste of insects has led to the now ongoing revolution in food insect production where only the sky is the limit at the moment.
