Hexafly produces a range of sustainable, natural commodities through insect farming. They take in the raw material bioproduct and use insects to upcycle that waste into valuable sustainable products such as organic fertiliser, high protein animal feed, sustainable insect oil and natural chicken feed.

They believe insect farming is the most efficient form of farming in the world in terms of the amount of protein produced per square metre and resources needed. There is also a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with other farming methods and it is also the most efficient when it comes to water usage.
