Leading producer of insect protein and organic fertilizer

Aspire uses a proprietary, innovative process to produce high-quality, low-cost crickets at commercial scale. Aspire’s crickets are sold as an affordable, sustainable and nutritious protein ingredient in both the pet and human food markets. Aspire’s operations also produce large volumes of cricket frass which are sold as an organic fertilizer.

The Opportunity

Global populations and appetites continue to grow while resources available for food production continue to shrink. Markets are demanding alternative protein sources that are affordable, sustainable, safe and nutritious. Crickets represent an attractive low-cost alternative that offers the complete nutritional profile of animal meat with the carbon footprint of plant-based foods.
