Flying SpArk, producer of fruit fly larvae, shows production expansion for food and feed

February 27, 2020 | Case Study

Flying SpArk produces protein-rich powders and oils from fruit fly larvae, which consume fruit and contain 70% protein. The company received an investment from the VC arm of Thai Union Group – a major global seafood producer – which recently established a $30 million fund to support development of alternative proteins, functional nutrition, and value chain technologies. The investment and partnership with Flying SpArk is the VC's first deal.
