Tyson Foods pivoting from meat to BUGS with large investment in bug and INSECT “proteins”
By Ethan Huff // Oct 27, 2023

The largest poultry producer in America is delving into so-called "insect proteins."

Tyson Foods, known mostly for its chicken products, is partnering with a Dutch firm called Protix that raises bugs to convert and manufacture their "proteins" into "food," first in animal feed and eventually in human food.

According to a company announcement, Tyson has agreed to build a giant bug processing and manufacturing facility in the United States with Protix's help. The facility will mass-produce insects for the American market in order to "reduce the burden on the planet."

The new Tyson factory will manufacture what are known as black soldier flies as food. These flies will be fed the feces from other animals – flies love poop, after all – bulking them up so they can then be ground up and turned into "food" for poultry, fish and even household pets.

"They can grow on almost every type of food waste and byproduct you can imagine," says Kees Aarts, the CEO of Protix, about black soldier flies.

(Related: So-called lab-grown "meat" is also a threat to the American public – it is great for investors, of course, but really bad for the families who get stuck eating it.)

Bugs are food for certain animals, not humans

In a separate statement, John Tyson, the current CEO of Tyson Foods, suggested that this new partnership with Protix is merely "an extension of our existing business."

In Tyson's view, adding ground-up black soldier flies to animal feed will bring about "really attractive growth characteristics that would accelerate Tyson."

By the end of the current decade, some experts expect that demand for edible bugs and insects will reach nearly half a million metric tons per year. Currently, demand for "insect proteins" is only around 10,000 metric tons, according to a 2021 report by Rabobank.

If the "greenies" get their wish and their message spreads to persuade a critical mass of the public that "insect proteins" are real food, then the growth of this particular market sector is expected to reach "an exponential speed."

"Today, we're focused on more of [an] ingredient application with insect protein than we are a consumer application," Tyson is further quoted as saying.

Though Tyson does not currently manufacture pet food in any form, it does sell its animal byproducts for use in both pet food and the aquaculture market, which feeds fish.

"Byproducts like animal fats, hides and inedible proteins, if not used or reduced, can end up in landfills," one report explains about how reusing these byproducts rather than just throwing them away is helping to conserve resources.

This is all good and fine, but it is a whole different animal for Tyson and Protix to commercialize the mass production of bugs, which they are doing under the guise that these products will only be for animals.

Sure, they will only be for animals in the beginning. Eventually, though, Klaus Schwab and his ilk will blackmail the politicians, as they continue to do on various other issues, to legalize the use of "insect protein" in human food – you just watch.

"One feature of being in the animal protein business is having to figure out ... how to derive value from" waste, Tyson added about his company's pivot into the "insect proteins" business.

As usual, the lying media continues to spread falsehoods about how raising animals and eating them like humanity has done since pretty much the beginning of time is somehow bad for the planet – but large-scale bug production facilities are great for the environment, apparently.
