Tyson Foods invests in Dutch firm Protix BV to make Americans EAT ZE BUGS
By Olivia Cook // Oct 26, 2023

Meat processing giant Tyson Foods Inc. has invested in the Netherlands-based insect protein supplier Protix BV to build an insect ingredient facility in the United States.

The company announced this endeavor in an Oct. 17 press release. According to Tyson Foods CFO John R. Tyson, their partnership represents the latest strategic investment that will drive added value to Tyson Foods' business as the meat giant seeks to diversify its operation.

Tyson Foods' global scale, experience and network as one of the largest food companies will combine with Protix's technology and market leadership in the insect protein market, which is expected to be worth around $3.715 billion by 2032.

Bloomberg reported that through a direct equity investment, Tyson Foods will acquire a minority stake in Dongen, Netherlands-based Protix BV to help fund its expansion.

But digging deeper, the partnership between Tyson and Protix has a more nefarious purpose. The globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) headed by its founder and Executive Director Klaus Schwab has been promoting the "eat the bugs" agenda for some time now. The globalists argue that eating insects is "better for the climate" compared to consuming real meat. To this end, the WEF has been promoting insects as a better source of protein – with one such article on its website serving as an example.

The July 2021 piece outlined several reasons why insect protein is purportedly "better" than livestock. First, it argued that insects require "fewer resources than conventional breeding."

"Studies suggest that for the same amount of protein produced, insects – mealworms in particular – require much less land than other sources of animal proteins," it said. "A study on crickets suggests they are twice as efficient in converting feed to meat as chicken, at least four times more efficient than pigs and 12 times more efficient than cattle."

The piece pointed out that raising insects for human consumption is "more sustainable," arguing that "insect rearing is less expensive than conventional farming in terms of CO2, water, surface area and raw materials."

Protix has been breeding insects for human consumption

Protix is a fully integrated insect ingredients company in operation since 2019 – serving major global companies in the aquaculture feed, livestock feed, organic fertilizer and pet food industries as the demand for insect ingredients continues to grow.

According to the East Bay Community Foundation (EBCF), Protix BV breeds larvae of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) for human consumption. The larvae are fed organic waste from the food industry. Once the larvae grow, the adult insects are processed into ingredients such as proteins and lipids.

Both companies have also entered into a joint venture to build and operate an insect ingredient facility in the continental U.S., which, upon completion will be the "first at-scale facility of its kind" to creatively re-use food manufacturing byproducts into high-quality insect proteins and lipids that will primarily be used in the aquaculture, livestock and pet food industries.

An enclosed system to support all aspects of insect protein production – from the breeding, incubating and hatching of insect larvae – will be housed in the "to-be-built" facility.

Tyson said: "The insect lifecycle provides the opportunity for full circularity within our value chain, strengthening our commitment to building a more sustainable food system for the future."

"We are very excited to announce the next step in our international growth strategy," said Protix CEO Kees Aarts. "Tyson Foods' and Protix's strategic partnership advances our joint work toward creating high-quality, more sustainable protein using innovative technology and solutions."
