Are you a producer?
We want to buy your bugs! For any producers that we work with – whether you want to sell your bugs under your own brand or ours, we require that you adhere to our quality assurance standards in order to ensure that all of our products are the highest quality human-food grade.
What is the Bugs Inc Human-Food Grade Seal of Approval?
It’s an efficient, validated assurance of quality that confirms that your products are up to our standards.
What does it take to get the Seal of Approval?
We’re glad you asked. The following is a list of what we’re looking for from our producers to ensure that they meet with our, and our clients’, quality requirements:
- GMP Inspection report
- HACCP Plan and flow diagram
- SOP/SSOP Documentation
- Recall Plan
- Proof of Insurance
- Frozen food processing facility (or equivalent) license
- Completion and passing of FDA/USDA inspection
- Insect feed supplier and ingredient lists
- Insect feed may not contain antibiotics or artificial gels
With the above set of documents, we’ll then conduct a brief inspection of your facilities to confirm that everything is in ship shape.
We’ll also require analyses to be done on a per LOT basis for any products that we purchase. We’ll ask for the following:
- Food Pathogen and Micro Analysis
- Heavy Metal analysis
- Forage Report
