Ÿnsect Launches Sprÿng

The brand features premium ingredients which combine scien3fically proven benefits with a low environmental impact.




(PRESS RELEASE) PARIS – Ÿnsect, the world leader in insect produc3on, announces the launch of Sprÿng, its new B2B2C brand for the pet food market. The brand features premium ingredients which combine scien3fically proven benefits with a low environmental impact.

Sprÿng offers easy-to-incorporate, neutral-tas3ng, odourless and light brown ingredients, designed with the needs of pet food manufacturers in mind. Made using the Molitor mealworm, the ingredients are natural, highly nutri3onal, and healthy, and can be used in the produc3on of dry and wet pet food. The ingredients boast the highest protein content in the insect market (up to 71%), low ash content (less than 5%), and linolenic acids.

Sprÿng embodies the company’s mission to revolu3onise our food system, whether for humans or pets. It comes on the back of Ÿnsect’s recent announcement to reaffirm the pet food market as one of the pillars of its short-term development strategy, alongside the opening of Amiens, the world’s largest ver3cal farm which is preparing to make its first deliveries in 2023.

Sprÿng offers highly technical products to help reduce the environmental footprint of pet food. Sprÿng has the concrete ambi3on to revolu3onise the pet food market towards more sustainability. Compared to other ingredients with equivalent proper3es used in pet food, Sprÿng’s ingredients have a smaller environmental footprint.

“At Sprÿng, we raise mealworms to provide a new qualita8ve source of food for pets while limi8ng our impact. The contribu8on to climate change of one kilo of our Protein70 feed, for example, is seventeen 8mes lower than that of beef offal, but also lower than that of chicken offal” explained Maximilien Jouy, Impact Manager Ÿnsect.

As the number of pets in the world con3nues to grow, especially in Europe and the United States, pet owners are becoming increasingly demanding in order to sa3sfy the specific needs of their companions.


Our pets are an extension of our family and there is nothing more important than your family’s health and safety. With that in mind, we looked for a way to maximize your pet’s quality of life by crea8ng Sprÿng. Our brand guarantees pet food manufacturers a sustainable op8on with the highest quality nutri8on for their fur babies. It is the key to rebalancing our pet diets, providing nutri8on, and protec8ng the environment,” said Benjamin Armenjon, PhD, General Manager for Animal NutriFon & Health at Ÿnsect.

“More than just ingredients, Sprÿng wants to enlighten pet owners and embody a real choice in the way they consume for their companions. A choice without concession: quality without feeling guilty about its environmental footprint,” said Alice Pabst Landon, Head of MarkeFng at Ÿnsect.

With Sprÿng, Ÿnsect intends to con3nue asser3ng itself as the leader in alterna3ve proteins with health benefits and sources of performance, and thus rapidly increase its order book, which is currently es3mated at more than $175 million in signed contracts and $1 billion in contracts under nego3a3on. The scale-up intends to rapidly gain a strong posi3on in this market, which is es3mated to be worth 78.4 billion dollars by 2026.

“Our mission with Ynsect has always been to create a natural, healthy and sustainable solu8on to combat world hunger. Sprÿng is the next evolu8on in bringing that mission into reality. This unique pet food provides our customers with a nutri8ous op8on for their pets that has the lowest environmental impact possible, something that has been unavailable before now,” remarked Antoine Hubert, CEO Ÿnsect.
