ABOUT US

EntoGreen aims to contribute to the development of sustainable food, focusing on the development of biologically based technologies that enable the reuse of nutritional waste that occurs in the agri-food sector and reintroducing them into the food chain.

This ambition was born by the fusion of concerns and solutions presented by two entrepreneurs, Daniel Murta and Rui Nunes.

Sustainability concerns in the agricultural sector have led Daniel to create Ingredient Odyssey in 2014. It was originally intended to provide an alternative and more sustainable source of protein to those traditionally used in animal feed. Insects have emerged as a solution to the future because they are easy to produce and can take advantage of low-value waste streams.

Rui initially had different concerns. The accumulation of agro-food waste and food loss were central. The use of insects would be an advantageous solution, converting these problems into a solution.

It was from the convergence of these ideas and concerns that EntoGreen emerged in the early 2015. By aligning these two aspects, it was possible to develop a more sustainable and efficient system operating in several central areas of the agri-food sector.

Thus, EntoGreen is focused in contributing for the sustainability through the reuse of vegetable by-products, creating novel nutrient alternatives for animal feed. Besides that, EntoGreen offers alternative ways for soil fertilization, looking to contribute to the agriculture sustainability. This way, EntoGreen intends to contribute to the different areas of food manufacturing, promoting its circularity.

EntoGreen is a brand of Ingredient Odyssey, Lda.
