EnviroFlight, the local company that developed a way to use black soldier fly larvae to process bio waste products into fish and animal food, has been purchased by Intrexon, a global company with a focus on synthetic biology.

“Current trends in human population growth drive increased demand for protein supply in food production, and we believe that BSF larvae provide the potential to revolutionize the animal feed industries,” said Intrexon Senior Vice President Corey Huck in a February 25 email.

The company, which has 700 employees worldwide, declined to state the purchase price.

Villagers should not see any immediate changes to EnviroFlight, which currently employs 17 people at its Millworks location. Founder and President Glen Courtright will continue to lead the company, Intrexon officials said.
