Tom Mohrmann has been Chief Executive Officer at Protifarm since 2018. Protifarm is a Dutch agri-tech leader producing functional and sustainable ingredients for the food industry from food-grade farmed insects. One of his goals is the international deployment of the effective ingredient line, AdalbaPro – made of the Alphitobius diaperinus (also known as the Buffalo Beetle). Besides digestible proteins, AdalbaPro ingredients also contain essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fibres, and healthy fats. The high quality food ingredients can add value to applications in for example sports nutrition, meat (alternatives), bakery and many more.

Mohrmann: “In our ambition to solve global challenges of the food industry, our approach is realistic, simple but most of all, effective. We bridge the gap in consumer acceptance by producing recognizable and functional ingredients for the food industry, for every day recipes.”
