Ÿnsect establishes presence in US with first mealworm farm

05 April 20222 min reading

Ÿnsect, leading company in insect protein production, announced the incorporation of Jord Producers, one of the biggest mealworm producers of the USA.

Jord Producers, based in Nebraska, has been incorporated into Ÿnsect’s production portfolio, signifying the global leader’s entry into North American mealworm production. The move comes off the back of Ÿnsect’s introduction to the US market in November 2021, when they announced they would be supplying high value-added protein to Seattle WA start-up Pure Simple True LLC.

With the world’s largest vertical insect farm in France, Ÿnsect transforms Buffalo and Molitor mealworms into premium, high-value, sustainable ingredients to feed animals, fish, plants and humans. Having raised more than $500 million from renowned investment funds, banks, and public institutions, Ÿnsect exports its products worldwide.

The addition of Jord Producers (one of the US’ biggest mealworm producers) to Ynsect’s production platform not only reflects the company’s continued expansion into the US market, but also their entry into the backyard chicken feed market. Antoine Hubert, CEO of Ÿnsect commented, “We’re very excited to continue establishing our presence in the US, which is a priority market for Ÿnsect as we expand globally.”

Cheryl Powers, CEO of Jord Producers, added: “Jord Producers is delighted to join the Ÿnsect family. We’re confident that move will help us take the production of high-quality mealworms to the next level.”
