With our BSF business calculator you can quickly validate your plans regarding commercial insect farming! These numbers give you an idea about how much you can save money or make it with Manna containers.
Please note that before reaching the maximum capacity, trial runs are needed to find the best recipe for substrate.
Biowaste: estimated 9 tn / month / container
Labor: estimated 18 hours / month / container
Power consumption: 650-1000 kWh / month / container depending on climate. Standard: 750 kWh.
Amount of BSF eggs: roughly 30-50g/tn. Standard: 45g/tn
Price of eggs is calculated based on Manna breeding container. Standard: 0.50 $/g
Savings compared to soy price:
Soy meal price * amount of live larvae * 0,667 + frass value – costs
Initial investment: Manna MIND units + ready-to-use containers (exclude insect trays, BSF eggs and pre- and post processing equipment).
OUTPUT ratio between larvae and fertilizer is HIGHLY dependent on the quality of the biowaste substrate!
