Chinese college graduate Ai Baorong tried to find a normal job, but couldn't get one, so she decided to get into the fly business. Yes, the business of growing and selling housefly maggots!
Baorong has since started to breed houseflies. Each maggot contains 60% protein, 15% fat, but also has some vitamins, and its protein nutritional value is several times higher compared to animal protein.
After the cleansing, deodorization and dehydration processes, the concentrated protein can be used for the production of soy sauce and MSG - which makes it a product with great market value.
Presently, Ai Baorong's insect cultivation base has already achieved a monthly stock of 30 tons of live insects, with customers from Korea and the United Kingdom.
