the backbone of your automated insect farm


Once you start to build your insect farming business you will probably also start to think about automation of your crate flow. Viscon Insect Technology support insect farmers with such considerations. We design and realize such processes, ranging from semi-automated to fully automated BSF and mealworm farms.

At what time in your farm development is automation the right choice? First, it’s important to understand the benefits. Compared to manual operations, automation first of all enables you to produce a lot more without hiring extra staff. As a consequence, it lowers operational expenditures. Furthermore, machines improve predictability and consistency and create better working conditions for your staff. No need anymore for heavy lifting. It’s also important to understand that automation can be a gradual process. For each type of scale we can offer solutions, to make sure your investments fit with your business case.

Who Are Viscon Insect Technology?

The Viscon Group is an internal logistics solution provider for indoor farming. We are active in automation of for example greenhouses and vertical farms. In all our markets crate and pallet handling solutions are key. In 2014 we started our activities in the insect industry, when we were contacted by Protix to develop their pilot farm. In the meantime we’ve built the logistics system for several farms, including industrial scale sizes. Nowadays the Viscon Insect Technology team offers solutions for pilot scale facilities up to the biggest farms in the world for mealworms and black soldier flies.
