InnovaFeed’s Decatur Plant: Sustainable Growth

Decatur, Illinois, is witnessing a sustainable transformation as InnovaFeed invests $250 million in a pioneering insect protein facility near an ADM plant. With an innovative “industrial symbiosis model,” it maximizes waste use, reflecting Decatur’s growing importance as a hub for sustainable industries.

This project isn’t just eco-friendly; it’s economically impactful. It’s set to create 280 direct jobs and many indirect ones, providing a much-needed boost to the local economy.

InnovaFeed aims to feed 10 billion people by 2050, and the Decatur plant, the world’s largest insect protein facility, is a vital step in that direction. Opening in late 2023 or early 2024, it symbolizes Decatur’s journey towards sustainable growth.
