2019 Entrepreneur Innovation, Entomo Farms

The recipient of the Kawartha Chamber’s 2019 Entrepreneur Innovation award is Entomo Farms.

Being the first edible insect company in North America, this family run business in Norwood
caused a paradigm shift in normalizing insects as a food ingredient. Driven by the benefits to
human health and the health of the planet, they now provide nearly 50 companies worldwide
with cricket powder to use in their own products, and Loblaws sells it under their PC label.
There is almost no waste produced since the castings are even used as a natural fertilizer.

Finalists: Emily Mae’s Cookies, PKA SoftTouch, TreeWell

The Sponsor of the Entrepreneur Innovation Award is Herod Financial Services
