Insects for a better world
Building a new business in a developing market takes time and a fair amount of resilience. The journey can be bumpy and comes with a learning curve. But with resilience and good management, results will follow. Nearly nine years since the formation of Bühler’s Insect Technology initiative, the business is now celebrating two major milestones: a new contract to realize its second industrial scale insect plant and the opening of the Insect Technology Center in Uzwil, Switzerland, planned for February 2022. In this interview, Andreas Baumann, Head of Market Segment Insect Technology at Bühler, shares the challenges and victories of this journey.
