Black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) is a revolutionary species of insect that emerged as a solution for the animal feed industry and as an alternative source of protein. Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) can grow on organic waste and convert manure into protein and lipids. BSF flour is rich in proteins (40-44%) and lipids (7-36%) and has therefore proven to be a cheaper protein alternative for animal feed applications. In addition, high-quality chitin can be obtained from defatted BSF exoskeletons. This chitin can be further processed into high quality chitosan, which has potential uses in agriculture, pest control, water treatment, food preservation, etc. In Canada, the government has allowed the use of BSF-derived products for feed, agriculture and pet food applications, accelerating the growth of the BSF industry.

COVID-19 Pandemic Impact Analysis on the Black Soldier Fly Market in Canada

The COVID-19 crisis had a mixed impact on the black soldier fly market in Canada. This pandemic has accelerated the demand for black soldier fly products due to their sustainability and high nutritional profile. However, from a manufacturing and sales perspective, this industry faced some challenges. This outbreak disrupted the sustainability of the BSF chain in a number of areas, from sourcing organic waste to the production process and consumption of animal feed products. The main logistical disruptor to BSF has been the lack of means of access such as organic waste material, slaughterhouse waste, and other important means of production. Indeed, calls to stay home and prevent social distancing have impacted agriculture-dependent services and routine labor in manufacturing facilities.

In addition, the feed industry was another obstacle to completing the production cycle and marketing process. Reduced marketing opportunities, blocking of import and export activities and lower purchasing power are also some factors in the animal feed industry that endanger BSF producers. This situation dramatically threatened the sustainability of BSF production systems in Canada in early 2020. In 2021, however, following the easing of COVID-19 regulations, the animal feed industry’s demand for alternative proteins will increase due to rising prices and shortages of soybean meal, and the Canadian government’s increasing support for the use of insect meal in cattle feed, making the new environmentally friendly Protein source like the one that gave the black soldier fly a boost.

Market Overview of the Canadian Black Soldier Fly Market

Based on the product type, the Canadian BSF market is divided into Whole Insect, Protein Meal, Oil, Frass, and other BSF products. In terms of value, the protein meal segment is expected to have the largest share of the Canadian black soldier fly market in 2021.
