meet our team

NGN is a social enterprise and a frontrunner in developing the insect sector in the Netherlands and African countries. Our core business is consultancy, training and network development surrounding innovations for insects as feed and food. Being a social enterprise means we support an economy that ‘’works for everyone’’- one which is circular and environmental conscious, inclusive and free of poverty. We do this by bringing science to practice working actively in training individual/group farmers to build sustainable businesses around insects.
