The New, Larger Cultivation Box for Higher Yields


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 and BSF (Black Soldier Fly) production, we can now announce an extra-large 60-80-19 breeding box.


“We received requests from various sources for a larger cultivation box with more volume, to be used specifically for industrial protein production from BSF.” – BEEKENKAMP VARPAKKINGEN

The ingenious proportions of the box in relation to breeding and stacking height make the box ideal for achieving high yields and returns. 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.

This, 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.This 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. Our specific bottom structure means that the crates remain sufficiently rigid despite the large surface area.

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 dye, which complies with the latest migration legislation. Due to the use of PP material, the trays are very dimensionally stable and can also be cleaned at high temperatures.
