Major food producer touts entry into ‘insect ingredients’ business

A major food producer’s new partnership triggered calls for a boycott over slippery slope plans to introduce “insect ingredient solutions” into the food system.

“Those flies are not going into human food, at this point.”

As cattle are branded bad for the environment by the same globalists who use fleets of private jets and motorcades to chauffeur them around the world, stakeholder capitalists have further advanced infrastructure plans that we all might “eat ze bugs.” On Oct. 17, another step in that direction was taken by Tyson Foods as they announced their partnership with Netherlands-based insect ingredient company Protix.

“Our partnership with Protix represents the latest strategic investment by Tyson Foods in groundbreaking solutions that drive added value to Tyson Foods’ business,” said chief financial officer John R. Tyson in a statement accompanying a press release.

The announcement set forth that the “strategic investment will support the growth of the emerging insect ingredient industry and expand the use of insect ingredient solutions to create more efficient sustainable proteins and lipids for use in the global food system.”

With the stated intent of building the “first at-scale facility” in the U.S. to “upcycle food manufacturing byproducts” to feed insects that will then be used in pet food, fish food and for livestock, Tyson boasted, “The insect lifecycle provides the opportunity for full circularity within our value chain, strengthening our commitment to building a more sustainable food system for the future.”

Though the release did not divulge the specific insects intended to be used in this endeavor in sustainability, CNN reported the U.S. facility, “will use animal waste to feed black soldier flies, which will then be turned into food for pets, poultry and fish.”

“Those flies are not going into human food, at this point,” the report added as Tyson commented, “Today, we’re focused on more of [an] ingredient application with insect protein than we are a consumer application.”

In his own statement, Protix CEO Kees Aarts expressed, “We are very excited to announce the next step in our international growth strategy. Tyson Foods’ and Protix’s strategic partnership advances our joint work towards creating high-quality, most sustainable protein using innovative technology and solutions. Moreover, we can immediately use their existing byproducts as feedstock for our insects. This agreement is a major milestone for Protix and significantly accelerates our ambition to grow through international partnerships.”

He also went on to tout the cost-effectiveness of using flies for food as he told CNN they “can grow on almost every type of food waste and byproduct you can imagine.”

Tyson Foods’ favor in support of the current thing had previously been well represented as they joined other major corporations in demanding their employees be injected with the experimental mRNA shot during their rollout in 2021.

Reaction from the public was less enthusiastic as many called for boycotting Tyson along with the need for transparency on brands that would be utilizing their “insect ingredients.”
