Georges Brossard, fascinated by insects from a young age, traveled and studied these creatures through observation. In 1989, after amassing a collection of over 250 000 specimens, he offers the mayor of Montreal to open an insectarium. Since then he has founded 4 other insectariums worldwide, including one in Shanghai and another in South Africa. Georges supports the Larvatria project 100%.
The Biology Department of the College Montmorency where François Fournier, researcher and entomologist, has the expertise and equipment necessary for the study of the ideal conditions for breeding and reproduction of insects. It actively assists Larvatria for a functional industrial location in the medium term.
The Saint-Hyacinthe Technopole offers the Company a financing plan to cover the purchase of land, a building of 2000 m2, and the necessary fixed equipment for the operation of a food biorefinery. The St-Hyacinthe region has the scientific, academic and industrial infrastructure needed in food processing to justify its selection for a pilot plant.
