Essento is the European pioneer for delicious, protein-rich and ecologically worthwhile insect food products. We develop, produce in-house and market our food innovations, like insect snacks, insect protein bars or insect burgers, for retail, food service and online sales.

Our vision is to create a circular food system: we feed insects for human consumption with side streams of tagriculture and the insect's waste goes back to agriculture as a fertilizer.

Our mission is to drive the food revolution by rising public awareness for insect food to create a valuable benefit for society, our health and our planet.
