What We Do
Multibox will adhere to the ISO 9001, 14001 and 22000 in order to deliver best business practice, environmental performance and regulatory compliance across our entire value chain.
Recycling your Waste
Our herds are fed on vegetable crop and manufacturing waste that would otherwise go to landfill. We re-purpose the waste in order to provide our micro-herds with an optimal high protein, high fat diet.
Our team includes partners who own working insect farms, employees with the necessary waste procurement, facilities and process plant management skills as well as feed sales experts.
Reared with love, by the end of 2018 we will have commercialised insect production at our prototype facility. The Multibox team treats our herd with care where bio-security is at the heart of our operations.
Our aim is to be the lowest cost producer selling into a commodity market. We should therefore be the most profitable and robust player in the sector able to exploit other opportunities.
We will monitor our entire value chain from waste source to fish breeder using cameras, sensors, radio tags and our ERP system to ensure we are operating at peak efficiency round the clock.
Research & Development
We’ve partnered up with Europe’s finest and brightest to enter new geographies with our proven insect technology and deliver market lead insect research to commercialise new verticals.
High Nutritional Content
Our processed insect meal will be packed full of nutrient rich proteins, high levels of Omega 3 and 6 and best of all, lots of useful fats and lipids; perfect for the aquaculture industry.
Insect meal as a feed component
Fed from waste products and processed at our facility, insect protein is an excellent replacement for fish protein in aqua feed, as it has a similar nutrient value, without the cost to the environment. The oils can be used in other animal feeds and the frass can be used as fertiliser.
- Protein 55%
- Oil 30%
- Ash 8%
- Moisture 7%

Associate projects and press
Farm 491, from the Royal Agricultural University, is a space for innovators to grow their businesses by applying technology to agriculture. Our offices are based here and we are surrounded by like minded innovators, progressive agriculture and bio-tech companies.
Multibox was featured on the “Farming Today” programme broadcast on BBC Radio 4. In this series they discussed the future of careers in Agriculture. As a pioneer of the Circular Economy, Multibox sees itself being a future employer for a vast number of subject-matter experts in the Agri-Bio Technology Industry.
Why We Do It
We create alternative animal feeds to reduce dependency on fishmeal, soybean, corn & wheat products.
That means less water consumption, less deforestation, more bio-diversity & less agri-chemical use globally.
9.5 Billion by 2050
The world population will be 9.5 billion by 2050. Without a rapid change in the way we manage our waste and food production many will starve and the environment will be irrevocably damaged.
Great things have small beginnings
Deforestation is happening at an ever increasing rate with 48 football fields of rainforest lost every minute. Much of this rainforest is removed by farmers hoping to grow soybean, used predominately in the animal feed industry. The same pillage of the shared environment is happening in our oceans and we intend to reduce it.
Let's start at Home
In 2013, in the UK, 15.1 million tonnes of food and drink was wasted; around 25% of the total food produced. We use this waste stream to feed our micro-herds to produce commercial and sustainable products.
