BSFL provides a natural free range type ingredient
EnviroFlight® Premium dried black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) meal is produced from oven dried larvae. All larvae are grown right here in the USA and fed a diet composed of pre-consumer by-product, AAFCO defined ingredients.
The meal is pressed larvae, removing a portion of the oil to provide a high protein ground product that can be used in a variety of livestock, aquaculture and pet manufactured feed products.
At EnviroFlight® we aim to create and improve innovative solutions to solve one of the biggest problems: world demand for animal-derived protein doubling by 2050.
Our pilot plant opened in 2009, and since then, we have been observing and analyzing the Black Soldier Fly for its potential. Our first discovery was that Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) can be used as a high quality nutrient source for poultry, fish, pets, exotics and swine in a variety of forms.
Harnessing the power of the fly will help us feed the animals that will ultimately feed our rapidly growing population.
Additionally, because BSFL are fed pre-consumer food manufacturing leftovers and by-products, we have the potential to significantly contribute to efforts that keep food waste out of landfills, reclaiming those nutrients so they can successfully enter into the food chain! Turns out insects can help sustainably address the global issue of world hunger.
Our feedstock ingredients are defined by The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) ensuring a premium product, and our feed and fertilizer products are registered with the appropriate State Departments of Agriculture and the FDA.
By implementing best practices for our feed ingredients, animal care, and processing, we are able to manufacture balanced, high-performance products.
Leveraging years of applied research and development in our Ohio pilot plant, our animal-rearing and manufacturing systems and practices have been designed for mass production. EnviroFlight opened the first U.S. commercial-scale production facility in 2019, which employs a commercial BSFL platform and provides a sustainable source of sought-after high-quality nutrients for the pet food, poultry, aquaculture, livestock, young animal and exotic feed industries.
Quality, Capacity and Consistency. From quality ingredients in our feedstock to consistent and safe processing, EnviroFlight® holds our entire operation to strict standards. Our Yellow Springs, Ohio pilot plant and our Maysville, Kentucky commercial facility are routinely inspected and approved by the respective Ohio and Kentucky Departments of Agriculture, and are fully compliant with the standards established by the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Feed Stock Quality
All our feedstock ingredients meet AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) guidelines – the same ones required for all livestock raised in the U.S. We use pre-consumer product streams, and our feedstock ensures a high-quality black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) feed produced in the largest commercial-scale BSFL production facility in the United States.
