Have you ever met an Insect Farmer? Neither have we until now, but we are convinced that insect farming holds the secret to a more sustainable future. During this 75 minute trip, you'll be hosted by Kai Ning, the 25-year-old co-founder of Insectta, Singapore's first ever insect farm. Option Highlights ✅ Behind-the-scenes on how a young student chose to be an insect farmer ✅ Get up close and personal with the heroes of the future - the black soldier flies ✅ Expose children to the concept of sustainability and reducing food waste in a fun way More on Insectta At Insectta, Kai Ning dreams of a world where black soldier flies will solve our food waste problems. The greedy larvae of these flies that she raises gobble up food waste, and in return, poop out organic fertiliser of the highest quality. Larvae also becomes quality feed for livestock. One insect, multiple uses, and zero wastage! 'Insects are so useful in so many ways and we hope what we do here can dismantle years of stigma surrounding insects for a better future,' said Kai Ning. We usually prefer to respect insects from a distance, but we love having a place to encourage us to get up close, and see all the good these little critters bring. Meeting Details The tour is held at Insectta, 60 Jalan Penjara, and is suitable for learners of all ages. Participants under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. In the event of rain, the tour will continue as planned as the premises are sheltered. NOTE: Please do not spray insect repellent before or during the visit.

They hold the knowledge to farm, process, and extract high-value biomaterials from the black soldier fly, ready for use in a diverse array of industries.

Will definitely recommend to eco-conscious individuals! It was super inspiring meeting Kaining and hearing her goals towards building a sustainable future, one insect at a time! Kaining shared a lot on food waste and how Insectta tackles it, and makes it super fun & engaging for participants at the same time!

Great concept! Singapore 🇸🇬 definitely needs this entrepreneurial setup more! What a great idea turning millions and tons of food 🥘 waste using 🐛 black soldier larvae to compost the food. Friendly service and make sure you make an appointment for walk in!
