Revolutionising food for plants and livestock, Hexafly is one of the latest agtech statups harvesting insects. Based in Meath, Ireland, this agritech company is farming insects to feed fish, fertilise plants, and enhance medicines and food with its proteins.

Hexafly was established in 2016 by Alvan Hunt and John Lynam in response to the growing issue of global food shortages. The founders developed a method of sustainable insect farming that converts low value waste streams – namely, black soldier flies – into high-value feeds, fertilizers and bioplastics. Hexafly supplies these insect-derived products to a range of companies in the aqua and animal feed, medical, cosmetic, food and plant nutrition industries.
