• Our Products


    MagMeal™ is our core product. It is made from sustainable, dried and defatted insect larvae, that are ground into a high quality protein meal.

    AgriProtein - MagMeal™
  • Our Products


    MagOil™ is a rich meaty tasting extract from our larvae. It works extremely well in layer chicken diets, in fish pellet mixes and for all kinds of pet feeds.

    MagSoil blends our larval residue (4:2:2 high nitrogen) with regular organic derived compost to make a super soil enricher perfect for root development, crop management & landscaping.


The world urgently needs new sustainable sources of protein. A growing population, scarce water and land resources, and declining natural fish stocks make this more critical than ever.

  • We are a sustainable natural protein business
  • We produce high protein feed ingredient for farmed animals, fish & pets
  • We recycle waste nutrients
  • We produce right at the point of use
  • Eight years of Science & Technology R&D

Industrial farming of chickens, pigs and fish relies on protein from two sources: land-based grains and marine captured fishmeal. Agricultural protein requires vast amounts of land and water, while the sea-caught alternative has material consequences for marine life. Increased global food demand and environmental limits have caused prices of both protein sources to soar in recent years.

AgriProtein is leading a new industry called nutrient recycling.

Using fly larvae fed on existing organic waste, AgriProtein has developed and tested a new large scale and sustainable source of natural protein.

The bioconversion process takes organic waste streams from food factories, supermarkets, farms and restaurants, and recycles these into valuable products: an insect based complete protein – MagMeal™, an extracted fat – MagOil™ and a rich residual soil conditioner – MagSoil™.

Larvae are a natural food for birds in the wild and fish in streams. Their nutritional composition is as good as that of fishmeal and far better than that of soya. MagMeal™ is an entirely natural super feed: it has excellent weight take-on and digestibility properties and is enjoyed by farmed fish, chickens, pigs and pets for its natural palatability.

AgriProtein has been developing its insect based protein products since 2009. In 2016, the world’s first industrial scale insect recycling site went live in Cape Town with the capacity to divert 100 tonnes of waste organics from landfill per day and produce over 2,000 tonnes of MagMeal™ per year.

After eight years of R&D tests and trials, AgriProtein is set to take the world by storm. A globally applicable, local waste-to-protein solution. We produce right where it is needed – whereas fishmeal is typically used 10,000 kilometres from its point of capture.

AgriProtein’s MagMeal™ and MagOil™ are not only great natural feed ingredients but environmentally game-changing.

Nutrient recycling delivers reduced land fill, lower pressure on marine stocks, and far lower carbon impact.
