Please describe your product or service.
MUSCA's insect-tech will save the world from protein shortage. We developed our original specie of Musca Domestica after 45 years and 1,100 generations of selective crossbreeding. A larva of the fly consumes organic waste, and with our technology, the larva itself turns into feed and its excrement turns into fertilizer, which are both high-performance. By selling the product toC and toB, farmers and aqua-farmers will be able to grow nutritious food efficiently. The whole process of the recycle can be competed only within 1 week, and the material can be any organic waste. This innovative technology of MUSCA will save the world from protein shortage, and at the same time, the growing demand of organic waste treatment can be solved.
