More about the transaction in Polish:

The company focuses on an innovative, proprietary technology of industrial insect breeding and the use of their biomass for the production of alternative feed materials (protein, oil) and organic fertilizers on a European scale. The company’s offer is aimed mainly at the pet-food market and feed for fish farming, as well as livestock. The company has full vertical integration of the production process – from its own genetic material to the final product. Production takes place in a modular model, which makes it easy to scale.
