"When you open the sealed package, they have a pleasant fragrance, it is a very nice surprise." says a farmer from California. Chubby Mealworms is working exclusively with Beta Hatch to bring these mealworms to their customers.

The team has been researching and refining the most efficient way of growing mealworms for several years now. Beta Hatch believes in harnessing the incredible potential of insects to change our food systems. Their product is 100% organically fed, (non-GMO) mealworms. In addition, Jiminy’s, an eco-minded dog food line, offers an innovative solution to this meat-industry conundrum. Created with insect protein sourced from crickets and grubs, Jiminy’s reduces the need for large-scale cultivation of poultry and beef. In comparison to chickens, pigs and cows, crickets and grubs consume far less feed and water, use a miniscule amount of agricultural space, and emit lower levels of greenhouse gases.

Beta Hatch is industrializing insect agriculture within a regenerative food system. Their insect-rearing technology converts mealworms and their waste into high-value proteins, oils, and nutrients for agriculture. Their IP enables insects to cost-effectively meet the global scale of demand for animal feed and crop fertilizer. Check out Beta Hatch's website for more.
