Better Origin, which turns flies into food for chickens, raises $3M from… Fly Ventures

– Better Origin, a startup that converts waste food into essential nutrients using insects fed to chickens inside a standard shipping container, raised $3m funding.
– The round was led by Fly Ventures and solar entrepreneur Nick Boyle, while previous investor Metavallon VC is also participating.
– Its competitors include Protix, Agriprotein, InnovaFeed, Enterra and Entocycle.
– The company’s product is an “autonomous insect mini-farm”.
– It is dropped on site. A farmer adds food waste — gathered from nearby factories or from the farm — into a hopper to feed the larvae of black soldier flies.
– Two weeks later, the insects are fed directly to the chickens as an alternative to the soy feed they normally get.
