Ÿnsect is a company created in 2011[1], specialising in the breeding of insects to produce ingredients for domestic and breeding animals.

These ingredients, mainly proteins and lipids, meet the needs of the animal nutrition markets[2].


2011 : Creation of Ÿnsect by Antoine Hubert (AgroParisTech), Jean-Gabriel Levon (HEC Paris, Polytechnique), Fabrice Berro (Ensimag) and Alexis Angot (Essec).

In 2012, Ÿnsect joined the Paris-based startup incubator, Agoranov[3].

In February 2014 the company raised €1.8 Million with Emertec Gestion and Demeter Partners. The same year Ÿnsect won the World Innovation Award and the Cleantech Company of the Year Award in France.

Ÿnsect invested €13 Million in 2015 to build Ÿnsite, its first farmhouse (Fermilière), with the closing of its second financing round at the end of 2014 for €5.8 Million and public authorities' support for €6 Million.

In 2016 Ÿinsect made its first deliveries to customers in the pet-food sector, after the opening of Ÿinsite, in Dole, France. At the end of the year, it completed its third round of financing of €14.2 million with the BPI France Ecotechnologies fund, Quadia and its historical shareholders. With this money Ÿinsect accelerated its development and launched its first large farmhouse, ŸnFarm#1[4].

In 2018, Ÿinsect announced the building of ŸnFarm#1 near Amiens[5][6].


Ÿnsect is involved in insect farming[7], beetle breeding and flour worm production.
