Q&A: What would you recommend for a startup in BSF production?

Black Soldier Fly Macro

To have a full understanding of what your large-scale facility would look like, it is essential to get a comprehensive overview of the purpose of a pilot facility. Through this, you can validate data from your business plan to make sure that the raw materials in the mix are within the cost price range and that the production is as expected. Although not necessary from the start, it is advised to consider drying or pressing for the larger scale to get approval. In our view, the outcome of the pilot should be taken into account to get the desired result. Additionally, it is important to make sure to have a clear vision of the end-goal when setting up a pilot. As the pilot facility is a crucial part of the whole production process, it is beneficial to ensure that the setup is completed correctly.
