Beta Buzz #4 reflects two things: i) the rapid development of our sector and ii) holding true to our commitment to enabling new market entrants to join the insect farming sector. We have again brought together content on the Black Soldier Fly farming sector, featuring offerings from equipment suppliers and service providers so that you can get your insect farm up and running. We have also been busy sourcing informative content including perspectives on Black Soldier Fly nutrition by Dr. Thomas Spranghers from KU Leuven (pg 23), a case study on Flybox’s modular insect farming systems (pg 33) and how insect farming contributes to the circular revolution in collaboration with Peritus Capital (pg 05). In addition, we have also included a brief recap of sector developments in the quarter (pg 37), along with an FAQ section on Black Soldier Fly farming in the context of waste processing (pg 47).
Beta Buzz Science Edition Front Cover
At Beta Bugs, we decided to contribute to the insect farming research focus by providing a sample of some of the cutting-edge research that is being undertaken within our sector in this Science Edition of Beta Buzz. Specifically, in this issue we cover topics such as the different ways of improving genetic performance, understanding and managing disease, the power of insect frass as a fertilizer and the nutritional demand of the BSF. Beta Buzz:The Science Edition, which differs from our existing Beta Buzz, provides a forum for knowledge dissemination from both academia and industry, ensuring that our sector can unlock further development and growth
Beta Buzz #3
Beta Buzz #3 continues to bridge the gap between businesses and customers to streamline the process and ensure a clear route to market for interested parties. Beta Buzz #3 continues to drive the message further afield, raising awareness of relevant technology and service providers in the insect farming value chain. The issue also features industry perspectives from a consumer facing angle from the likes of retail giant Tesco, highlighting how they see insect farming from a feed sustainability angle, which will help to reduce their carbon footprint within the retail supply chain.

This issue of Beta Buzz also includes the current membership bodies for each main region, who are important sources of regional best practice, regulations, and specific developments in the insect farming industry.
