Skolix is an Insect farm
In Skolix we care about the environment and the future of the next generations. We believe that it’s time to return to natural food sources that please and benefit the animals, the people, the plants and the planet. Therefore, in Skolix we breed insects as an alternative food source for the agri-food sector, providing a sustainable solution to the ever-increasing global demand for protein. Specifically at Skolix we produce the larvae (mealworms) of the insect Tenebrio molitor. Insect breeding has low environmental impact and we use vertical farming, which minimizes the use of arable land. Our production process is based on the rules of circular economy since we utilize local agricultural biomass for insect breeding, while insect by-products, such as frass (insect excreta) and chitin, have further applications, resulting in zero waste production.
