Ÿnsect has just gained approval for its natural insect fertilizer “ŸnFrass” issued by ANSES, the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety. Ÿnsect thus becomes the first company in the world to obtain certification and marketing approval for a natural insect-based fertilizer. It is derived from dejections – or frass – of the mealworm Tenebrio Molitor which feeds on cereal by-products at Ÿnsect’s factory in Dole (France). ŸnFrass is the fruit of 4 years of research & development in partnership with several leading institutions and can now be used in organic farming in accordance with regulation no. 384/2007. ŸnFrass is now distributed to its first customers.
