Since 2015

Developing Nutrition
with Science

With respect for our customers,  with care for the environment

"We manufacture protein, oil and organic fertilizer from Black Soldier Fly larvae for a greener and healthier Malaysia"

Our insect-based products, developed through a zero-waste production model, cater to various sectors, including pet food, livestock, and aquatic feed. These products have demonstrated a range of proven functional benefits, contributing to the improvement of animal health and growth.

At the core of our operations is a unique combination of beneficial microbes and Black Soldier Fly Larvae, cultivated on clean and traceable agro-industrial by-products. We have implemented a tropical production system designed to be not only cost-effective but also environmentally friendly, with minimal energy usage and zero waste. This eco-friendly model ensures that our production costs remain remarkably low, yet we maintain the same high standards as European or North American manufacturers, enabling us to pass on cost savings to our customers. Our production facility, spanning two hectares, is strategically located in Malaysia, allowing us to efficiently ship industrial volumes of materials throughout Asia, Europe and South America.

Having commenced our journey in 2015 in Vietnam, Nutrition Technologies has experienced significant growth and expansion. Today, our primary production plant, laboratory, and office are based in multiple sites in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, with additional labs and offices in Vietnam and Singapore.
We are proud of our research partnerships with key institutions across the region, aimed at developing cutting-edge products. Currently, we are actively engaged in feed trials on key consumer species, further enhancing the effectiveness of our offerings. Notable investors on our cap table include PTT Ventures, Sumitomo Corporation, Bunge Ventures, ING Sustainable Investments, and Openspace Ventures. This financial backing underscores the confidence and support we have garnered from influential players in the industry, positioning Nutrition Technologies as a key player in the Malaysian and global agricultural landscape.

By using predominantly wasted by-products as our raw materials, our production system significantly reduces the burden on our planet’s resources. 


Our Hi.Protein® provides a great alternative to fishmeal, which is produced from whole pelagic fish which are essential to sustaining our ocean’s health and biodiversity.   


Our Hi.Frass® is a great natural fertilizer and with its excellent microbial properties, helps restore soil health; boosts nutritional uptake in plants and crops; and helps sequester carbon back into the soil.


Our insect technology embodies a closed loop,  zero-waste system, which uses minimal amounts of energy and has a very limited burden on the environment.

Company Locations


We strongly believe that rearing tropical insects should be done in the tropics.

We operate and manufacture from our flagship location in Malaysia, with offices in Singapore and representation in the UK, Germany, and Vietnam.

Our next steps will be to further extend our production and R&D companies across Southeast Asia, as well as other tropical zones across the world.
