Tebrio farms and industrially processes insects into top-quality ingredients for animal feed and plant nutrition.
Tebrio’s vision is to be a leading global supplier, making use of the natural goodness of insects on an industrial scale.
A FOOD SUPPLY CRISIS
According to the figures given by the United Nations and the World Resources Institute, in 2050 we will have to produce 70% more food to meet global demand.
Currently, livestock consume 20% of the proteins we produce per year and is coming into direct competition with human consumption for water use, arable land and soil resources. To this we have to add the depletion of the fish populations, which are a vital food source.
A rapid increase in production is necessary if we are to avoid an even greater problem. protein. And the FAO hopes that the protein extracted from insects may help close the gap. Because we must bear in mind that a vertical insect farm, such as Tebrio’s, is 150% more productive per hectare than any other agricultural farm.
Resulting in an increase in animal protein demand greater than the supply: 200 million tonnes per year. Foreseeable increase in animal protein demand for 2035.
By replacing or complementing other traditional protein sources, based on livestock and fishing, with insect protein, Tebrio can help compensate for the extra food volume we will need to supply 2 billion extra people in 2050.
We will also help reduce the pressure on marine populations. And we will optimise the use of water and soil, in addition to minimising the impact of the farming sector on global greenhouse gas emissions, which is estimated at 25% of global emissions.
Neither should we forget that insects form part of the natural diet of fish, birds and some mammals. And they contain high levels of essential proteins and nutrients, optimum for animal growth.
Conscious right from the start of the importance of quality and continuous improvement to achieve our purpose, we have established a quality management system according to standard ISO 9001: 2015, which we commit to maintaining as the basis for continuous improvement. This commitment extends to compliance with the legal and regulatory requirements applicable to us in our activity.
As part of its commitment to the values proposed by the BCORP Certification, Tebrio is committed to purchasing its commodities and contracting local and independent service providers in the province of Salamanca (at least 50% of the contracts made by the company).
Our quality policy is oriented by the following points:
