Cycle Farms was created in February 2016 by two agricultural engineers passionate by new technologies. Cycle Farms has met a quick development to reach an important technology readiness level. The company has focused its research effort on the Black Soldier Fly, an insect specie with the ability be easily domesticated, reared in industrial quantity and adaptable to several environments.
Cycle Farms has always had a strong link with the African continent since its creation. A lot of regions demand animal protein for both food and feed. In 2019, the company started its first integrated unit in Ghana, a country with a highly dynamic economy. The company is producing and selling to more than 160 fish farmers a complete feed with a production capacity of 15 000 T per year. the company is now selling products under the Enam Papa Brand in five countries : Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso.
With public and private partnerships, mainly the strong impact of its industrial partner ORVIA, Cycle Farms became a key actor of insect production. The company in France is now selling genetic to this emerging sector with the renovation of an old poultry hatchery.
