History in the making…


Project initiation

Initiation of a project to implement a sustainable insect bioconversion concept.


Start-up phase

Intensive research and development as well as initial practical trials for breeding and fattening the black soldier fly based on brewery residues.

First in-house developments and process diagrams for the construction of a test facility for breeding and fattening black soldier flies. Search for cooperation partners for the realization of a micro-research and development plant in Upper Austria with the support of funding agencies.

Founding of an independent company under the name "Insektianer GmbH" with the support of national investors and business angels with the mission of regional, sustainable and high-quality products.



Start of long-term cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria for scientific support in the development of breeding methods and substrate conditioning and CGI, a world leader in plant engineering for insect bioconversion.



Relocation to a new operating site in the logistics heart of Austria. Starting signal for the revitalization and establishment of a globally unique recycling economy and insect farming hub at the Wels terminal on more than 14,000 square meters. Construction and commissioning of the first industrial pilot plant as a proof-of-concept for economically viable insect farming in compliance with legal requirements for animal husbandry and food hygiene as well as the use of scalable, industrial technologies and plant systems.

Development of a modular technology concept for the industrial utilization of organic residues by insects as a basis for long-term expansion into national and international markets. Renaming of the company to "REPLOID Value Solutions GmbH" and establishment of a new corporate structure for the strategic division of the various upcycling technologies.


Large-scale expansion
