Protix produces insects that are the basis for protein-rich animal feed. The insects are fed with plant waste from the environment. By reusing this plant waste and bringing it back into the food chain, Protix closes the food cycle. Within 10 years, Protix has grown this idea to a company with 110 employees, operating in 15 countries.
On 11 June 2019, King Willem-Alexander opened the newest Protix production facility, officially the largest insect farm in the world. After the official opening the King was given a tour of the new facility and was able to take a look at all aspects of the cultivation process. King Willem-Alexander was accompanied by Minister Carola Schouten of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.
Domes Europe was commissioned to build a 30 meter Dome with bayview for this festive event. During the grand opening, the Dome offered a podium for several speakers. In addition, two aluminium construction tents, a stretch tent and a couple of pyramid tents were built.
