Nutrition for your pet – from a sustainable insect farm.
Oberland Agriscience is a Maritime-based black soldier fly larvae farm. Obie’s Worms, named after our Mascot Obie, is a brand of nutritious and delicious products produced by Oberland in our sustainably-operated, zero-waste facility for your pets. We are intent on making our planet a greener, more sustainable place and we know that is important to you too.
There is an increasing global demand on the world’s diminishing protein supply. As global populations swell and, fish stocks decrease and the cost of producing land-based protein increases, we humans (and our pets!) are using more protein than ever. Filling the escalating need for protein (not just at the dinner table, but at all levels of the food chain, from aquaculture feed to livestock rearing, to owning pets) is threatening our fragile resources through overfishing and unsustainable farming practices. Not to mention, there is considerable waste left behind.
From our Halifax, Nova Scotia facility, we want to contribute nutritious protein into the system sustainably and we believe the Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) is a great ally in confronting the global protein shortage. The amazing power of this insect is its ability to consume almost any pre-consumer organic waste and rapidly grow into protein-rich BSFL.
Closing the food loop, Oberland processes pre-consumer organic waste into a stable feed for rearing BSFL and grows Obie’s Worms on a large scale to ensure a steady supply of nutritious and delicious products for your pets.
