Statistics and facts 


Gr CO2 emission per kg

A complete insect farm takes up much less space than conventional livestock farming. On a fraction of the land occupied by livestock, you can grow millions of insects. Insects are raised with minimal CO2 emissions, where for example, one cow emits 2850 grams of CO2 per kg, while an insect emits only 16 grams of CO2.


Did you know that 2 out of 7 people eat insects daily?

This is especially true in the continents of Asia, Africa, and South America, where it is a real delicacy. It’s strange that we in the West are not familiar with this. This is a cultural difference that Bugsy wants to break down so that everyone can enjoy the delicious taste and nutritious benefits of eating insects.

Gr protein per 100gr

Traditional meat is often consumed to obtain the necessary amount of protein. Chicken and beef are the most popular, while insects are actually much more suitable. Insects are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and fats. Insects contain about twice as much protein as beef and almost twice as much as chicken.

Amount of water needed for 1kg of meat

Of course, water is also needed to maintain insects, just like in the meat industry. However, the difference between livestock and insects in terms of water use per kg is even greater than in terms of energy use. For example, you need less than 1000 liters of water during the growth process for 1 kg of insects. For 1 kg of beef, however, 15,000 liters of water are needed during the growth period.

Amount of food needed for 1kg of meat

Insect farming is an energy-efficient process. This means that little energy is lost during the growth of insects. The energy input for a cow is 13 times greater than for an insect. This means that 13 kg of food is used for 1 kg of beef, which is an input/output ratio of 13:1. Insects are much more efficient, as mentioned above. The food input for 1 kg of insect meat is 1 kg, making the input/output ratio 1:1.
