“Enterra and Entomeal have been working in collaboration since 2014 to establish sources of traceable, pre-consumer food inputs required for a new facility that will have a capacity to treat 36,000 tonnes per year of waste organics, with expansion plans to 54,000 tonnes per year in the second year of operation. The joint venture is currently limited to Switzerland and will operate under the name of BSF Farms S.A. based in Geneva. “
