Black Soldier Fly

The Black Soldier Fly, Hermetia illucens, is a common fly of the family Stratiomyidae.


Found across all continents in the world, this insect is neither a pest nor a vector.

In fact, the Black Soldier Fly plays an essential role in decomposing organic waste and returning nutrients to the soil. It consumes voraciously organic waste and converts it to protein.


Containing high levels of protein and fats, the Black Soldier Fly provides a high-quality source of alternative protein that can substitute soybean meal and fish meal used in poultry and aquaculture feed. Other high-value bio-products are also derived.
