As part of its operations, Insect Feed Technologies (IFT) feeds waste to bugs to create an alternative source of animal feed. But make no mistake – the startup’s focus is not sustainability-focused waste management. As a serious food/agri-tech company, the ambition and innovation of its team ensure that it is poised to make animal nutrition greener, more affordable, and better than it ever was.



The Spirit of Enterprise (SOE) Awards is a platform for local entrepreneurs to be honoured and recognized for their entrepreneurship and business innovation.
