Black Soldier Flies (BSF): Great Business Opportunity and a Perfect Solution to Organic Waste Problem

Where Does Our Food Waste Go?

FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation) has mentioned that roughly one-third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted.

In Indonesia alone, we are facing the fact that almost 13 million tonnes of food are wasted every year. The wasted food could feed roughly 28 million people, the same number of hunger rates in Indonesia (according to a study made by Detik Finance).

Considering that organic waste is one of the biggest contributors to global warming, the statement about food waste situation in Indonesia has drawn much attention from food and waste experts all around the world. In fact, according to a study made by Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in 2016, Indonesia is the second largest food waster of the world, squandering nearly 300 kilograms of food per person each year.

The Great Potential of Organic Waste

Biogas for the new alternative of renewable energy source, compost that fertilizes the soil, and animal feed, those are just 3 of many benefits that we could get from managing organic waste in a correct and responsible way.

Organic waste could also be used as a source of food for another highly-valuable commodity: Black Soldier Flies (BSF).

BSF is useful in reducing the amount of organic waste that existed, resulting in good raw materials for compost and a water waste residue that could be processed into biogas.

The BSF itself can be bred and sold as a new protein source that could be used as animal feed. The egg and larvae could be produced and marketed for various purposes.
