BEEKENKAMP VERPAKKINGEN : Providing Targeted Solutions for Insect Breeding

Beekenkamp Verpakkingen has been a producer and supplier of various logistics solutions for more than 35 years

For several years now, we have also been providing targeted solutions for insect breeding. Together with our practical experience, we look at how we can take this new industry to a higher level. After the introduction of our insect breeding tray especially for mealworm production, we now have our completely new
BSF (black soldier fly) production tray available. We received requests from various sides for a higher cultivation tray with more volume to be used specifically for protein production from the BSF, for example:

  • A sophisticated ratio between cultivation and stacking height of the container means that a high yield can be achieved.
  • During cultivation, in addition to a lot of heat, a lot of CO² and ammonia is also produced. The open corners with a uniquely designed long side have been applied especially for this purpose.


BeekenkampThis, together with the new smooth bottom, provides improved airflow, resulting in more air movement. This allows for a more even climate between the trays to be achieved. BSF cultivation almost always takes place on a large scale with a lot of tray handling. For this reason, the trays have been developed in such a way that they can be processed for years. Together with specialists in the field of automation, we looked at the most efficient possible automatic processing of these new breeding trays. Partly due to sufficient stiffness in the corners in combination with sufficient gripping options, the BSF trays are very suitable for
automatic stacking and washing. The new insect breeding trays are manufactured from a food-safe approved combination of polypropylene and pigment, which complies with the latest migration legislation. Due to the use of PP material, the trays are dimensionally stable and can also be cleaned at high temperatures.

With an in-house expert in the field of product design and technical drawing, Beekenkamp Verpakkingen can realize new products in a short period of time.
