• ENTOTRUST

    Insect food you can trust.

  • The ENTOTRUST program

    Global program for quality insect food.

     

    We are an independent organization, certifying the quality of food and beverage products, containing edible insects. Certified products are safe and sustainable.

     

    We promote deeper knowledge and good practices to widen the adoption of insects as an alternative source of protein compared to traditional animal breeds. The ENTOTRUST seal is assigned only to those products and producers complying with strict requirements.

     

    - What drives us -

    A world where edible insects will supply healthy food, making high value proteins accessible to a wider population with important environmental and social benefits.

     

    - Why we exist -

    Recognize worthy producers in the market. Stand for consumers health.

    ENTOTRUST mission is to secure the health of consumers by recognizing quality insect farmers and products. Nudging the people decision when buying new alternative food and working with our stakeholders network to improve the scientific knowledge and best practices.

     

    - The Program principles -

    Moving from the existing traditional food standards we develop the program with the exchange and contributions of producers, farmers and scientists.

    • Integrity. Our organization is free from direct participation of producers and farmers. No conflict of interest.
    • Evidence based. Solid scientific base with research partners.
    • Open. The input of all relevant stakeholders is considered highly valuable.

    Through scientific collaborations and our expert committee we support active research and knowledge on insects farming and processing. Contribute, are you willing to take part? write us.

     

    Producer

    Enhance your brand.

    We support producers to be unique and preferred.

     

    Insect food industry is growing, many farmers and manufactures are entering the international market. We confirm the quality of products and processes, through the ENTOTRUST audit. We advise for improvements.


    ENTOTRUST is the international program to certify products, manufactures and farm operations. The seal stands for high quality. See the latest certified products.

    Consumer

    Eat safe insect-food.

    We stand for consumers information and health.


    In the growing offer of insect based food, consumers need guidance in their shopping choices to avoid surprises, potentially harmful. In shops or conveniently online, the guarantee is not always clear.


    ENTOTRUST seal on the packaging is the consumer reference to select safe and high quality products. Producers that can be trusted.

    Food Safety

    Environmental Footprint

    Social Compliance

    ENTOTRUST seal on product packaging is the proof that the producer is able to reach high quality and safety levels in his products, beyond the requirements of local or international rules.


    ENTOTRUST program follows a farm to fork approach to assess the product from raw materials, through the production process. The assessment also considers the environmental footprint and social compliance dimensions.
     

  • ENTOTRUST. How it works

    Mitigate food safety risks, confirm your sustainability.

     

    Within the novel food framework, and existing guidelines, we analyze insect based food products, manufacturing and farming. The focus is on specific requirements defined by our program, matching international food standards (ISO 22000, HACCP, GFSI) and existing best practices. Our assessment take into account:

    • Chemical elements presence and tolerances
    • Microbiological elements (pathogenic and indicator bacteria)
    • Allergens and ingredient authenticity
    • Process food safety
    • Operations environmental impact and social fairness 

    Many pathogens have not been studied yet, and for this reason we also participate in active research. The analyses are performed by independent accredited laboratories and audits are carried out by expert auditors.

  • Get started

    Certify your Farm.

    An independent point of view will give you the strength to show how quality and food safety are managed towards company stakeholders, institutions and consumers. As well as how you deal with environmental impact and social compliance.

     

    Consider to have your farm ENTOTRUST verified.

    Get started

    Certify your Products.

    Surveys show that consumers need reassurance on product quality. Certified products get higher recognition and loyalty, especially when the producer brand is entering the market and there is an ongoing change in consumption habits to be supported.

     

    Consider to have your products ENTOTRUST verified.

  • Team

    Passion for high quality food.

     

    It all started with our founders, international citizens, sustainability ambassadors and gourmets.

    They realized that the key aspects of consumer safety and environmental impacts are not always in focus in the rising demand and offer of alternative sources of food.

    Who is valuing conscious producers? Who is caring for the consumers? There was a clear need to create an independent organization and a network of stakeholders to promote good practices.

  • ENTOTRUST. Sustainable safe

    Consumers are aware and want to be informed, thus demanding more high-quality food.
    Quality is a chain where a missing ring can compromise consumer satisfaction or health.

     

    In food manufacturing there are many aspects to be properly handled, such as hygiene, origin of the ingredients, contamination, storage and packaging. Insect farms which are not well managed might present environmental impacts for the use of energy or ecosystem interaction. The personnel working conditions might not be fair.

     

    Let the numbers speak. Known and unknown.

    Cadmium has been detected in edible insects. It is a carcinogenic substance particularly toxic for kidney.
    Cadmium can persist in kidney for up to 30 years.

    Salmonella is the most important foodborne pathogen at a global level. 15% of deaths of all foodborne diseases.


    Preventive measures along the food chain are key.

    Allergy

    Insect protein can trigger allergic reactions even at the first exposure due to a potential cross-reaction with crustaceans and house dust mites allergens.

     

    It is among the most common food allergens. Sending more food-allergic people to hospital emergency than any other.

     

    Clear labelling and information are must.

    Mycotoxins

    Are carcinogenic substances produced by mold during improper storage.

     

    A toxic secondary metabolite produced by organisms of the fungus kingdom and is capable of causing disease and death in both humans and animals. 1 of 10 deaths of foodborne diseases is attributed to mycotoxins.
