Feed from food waste firm Inspro has won a £14.5 million fund designed to help farming practices evolve to be more efficient and help meet the UK’s net-zero goals. Inspro, which was founded by Richard Small in 2017, has won funding from the UK’s Farming Innovation Pathways competition to look at whether crops can be fertilized with products made from insects. Based in Surrey and Cambridgeshire, Inspro will use the well-established process of bio-conversion using black soldier flies to create protein-rich animal feed from food waste in order to minimize food waste miles, utilize the output of feed, and frass as locally as possible to create “local nutrient circularity”. Inspro’s mission is to create a sustainable virtuous cycle that transforms food waste into nutritious feed and fertilizer. It says that mass protein production is not environmentally friendly and the world is currently wasting 30% of all it produces. Other winners Among the other projects that have won funding are Microbiotech, which is leading a consortium of growers, scientists, and engineers that aims to replace peat with planting materials derived from coir (a low-carbon substitute) to grow mushrooms and salad vegetables, and Tozer Seeds and their collaborators from across the UK, who will be developing an alternative to pesticides that uses lasers and bioactive compounds to treat vegetable seeds.
