Enterra Feed Corporation has received new approvals to sell its insect-based feed ingredients in the United States, Canada and the European Union.
The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) in the United States accepted Enterra’s request to include Black Soldier Fly Larvae Meal in feed for salmonids in their list of authorized feed ingredients. The supporting material and the change in the definition was reviewed and supported by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“This is the first time an insect meal product has been approved in North America for the aquaculture industry and we’re excited to be the first to market,” said Andrew Vickerson, Chief Technology Officer at Enterra.
The company’s first product, Enterra Whole Dried Larvae, was approved by AAFCO in 2016.
