The SFT Network
Our distributed insect production model connects local agriculture and food supply chains through a technology-driven network of sustainability.
Spreading the Love
We designed our distributed “hub and spoke” model to have sustainable economic and environmental impact, connecting local agricultural and food supply chains through a scalable, technology-driven network. Our strategically located fly farms serve as regional hubs for geographically distributed upcycling centers, allowing us to offer customized solutions with local impact while maintaining efficiency, consistency, and quality.
REGIONAL BREEDING HUBS
Breeding and hatching are the most crucial and technical aspects of insect production. To improve efficiency and ensure consistency, we selectively position only a few fly farms that maintain the complete life cycle of our BSF colonies. These regional breeding hubs contiguously supply eggs to local upcycling centers and conduct ongoing research and development to benefit the entire network.
LOCAL PROCESSING FACILITIES
Our food-safety ready factory design is highly scalable and designed for turn-key operation by local partners. Upcycling Centers are located in close proximity to waste steam concentrations to reduce collection and transport costs for a lower carbon footprint. Network partners are able to leverage SFT breeding technology, production SOPs, and ongoing R&D for success and impact at the local level.
