Manna free webinar series 2_2023

HOT NEWS! FREE Black Soldier Fly webinar series Season 2 on Autumn 2023

Manna Insect has just launched a set of FREE webinars to share our experience and expertise in BSF / insect rearing, turning biowaste into insect protein suitable for farm animal and fish feed and so much more.

And not just that, since we’re also sharing BSF business cases, actual numbers and all. All you need to do is take it all in, and decide yourself if rearing insects for various needs and different business cases makes sense for you.

Here below are the dates and actual registration links. Please note that each webinar needs a separate registration, so we’ll know to whom to send each recording, materials, etc. that the presenters may share.

The webinars are hosted by Manna Insect CEO and Founder Ykä Marjanen, whom many of you already may know, and by Saverio Danubio, our sustainability specialist and industrial biotechnologist . Some of the webinars also have guests speakers, whose names we will announce later.

You’re very welcome to join! In case you missed the first webinar series in spring 2023, scroll down to see the topics and to get free recordings of the webinars and Q&A:s!


New webinar series for spring 2024 will be announced soon!
