Founded by Ankit Alok Bagaria and Abhi Gawri in 2019, Loopworm is working with smallholder farmers to build decentralized insect rearing facilities. The company provides insect-based products for agriculture, poultry, and more. The startup aims to produce 300,000 metric tons of sustainable insect-based protein per annum in the next five years.

Loopworm is Omnivore’s second investment under its OmniX Bio initiative, which backs early-stage agrifood life science startups.
