MealFrass, the revolutionary fertilizer from MealFood Europe, has received the certification that guarantees that it is a fertilizer usable in organic vegetable production per the UNE 142500:2017 Spanish standard.
It has received the license to use the SHC brand, from the control and certification body SOHISCERT, with the reference “Usable Inputs in Ecological Plant Production.”
“It is an important achievement for us; it allows us to ensure a suitable product for organic vegetal farming certified by an official independent entity, and once again, to lead the worldwide sector giving the maximum guarantees to our customers”, says CEO Adriana Casillas.
MealFrass is a 100% organic fertilizer obtained from the breeding of the tenebrio molitor. It is suitable for organic production, provides natural protection against the most common pests, and increases the performance of your plants without using chemicals or aggressive by-products.
The boom in organic production in recent years has driven a considerable increase in demand for fertilizers and phytosanitary products suitable for this production system.
MealFood Europe was established in 2014 in Salamanca, developing a unique value proposition at a technological, technical and commercial level in an industrial environment, and being the first company in Europe to obtain all the necessary records for the commercialization of products derived from insects. MealFood works with the tenebrio molitor insect, which allows them to position their products in the premium sectors of all their markets. In its short but fruitful career, it has had support from the CDTI -through the NEOTEC program-, the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Salamanca County Council, the Bases Foundation, the Sodical investment company, the Institute of Business Competitiveness Castilla y León (ICE) and Salamanca City Council. Caixa Capital Risc and the CDTI have recently entered the company, in an operation that makes them shareholders of the company with a 40% stake.
