Plastic breeding solutions for breeding insects; mealworms, black soldier fly and buffalo worms Beekenkamp Verpakkingen has been developing plastic packaging solutions for the Potato, Vegetable and Fruit (AGF) sector for over 35 years. Beekenkamp has been active within the insect sector since 2018, developing a plastic mealworm breeding box for a mealworm breeding farm for the production of high-quality protein. The breeding boxes are designed especially for use in automated systems. The dimensions of the box offer the ideal ratio for breeding height and ventilation capacity combined with automatic feeding. This results in maximum returns per m2.
We are using our knowledge and many years’ experience in the diverse logistics and breeding sectors to convert new insect market demand into solutions. We launched the mealworm breeding box this year, which is now being used successfully in many mealworm breeding farms. The box is suitable for small and large mealworm breeding farms. Without automation, this breeding box is also user friendly for manual mealworm feeding.
Breeding solutions for feed material and production of Black Soldier Fly and Buffalo worms We also offer customised breeding solutions and can help you optimise your insect breeding processes including for black soldier fly, buffalo worms and other insects. We work with you to develop a solution for your product or process. Our designer can provide you with a technical drawing and prototype quickly. Specific breeding characteristics are taken into account in the box design as well as the boxes’ incorporation in various automation systems, ensuring that the boxes are suitable for long-term use. The plastic boxes are produced using injection moulding from high-quality food-grade approved PP or PE material, resulting in a sturdy box that retains its shape. Another advantage is that the boxes can be cleaned with hot water, which contributes to hygiene within your company.
