About

WHO ARE WE?

Hi we are Davide Storino and Luca Costamagna. We are two guys and we love our job to such an extent that we are sure it will be able to lead an emprovement in the world. Our friendship has far and deep roots, we know each other since we were children, we have followed the same technical studies then everyone have chose their own working branch but without never loose each other, endeed we continued spending time together. We both keen on entomology and insect-eating and during our hiking in the foothills, seaside holidays or evenings with friends, it was clear that was urgent the necessity to transform our passion in a job. At that time of our lives we found ourselves at a crossroad: we have to decide if continue with our respective jobs or join our knowledge, passion and energy in a unique direction. From this decision DL Novel Food was born.

 WHY INSECTS 

The idea grows into the mind of the two founders Davide Storino and Luca Costamagna to find, at least in part, a solution to environmental exploitation and pollution due to intensive livestock. In the second part of the twentieth century meat consumption per person in the world is doubled, even the population has grown from 2,7 to more than 6 billion people: consequently meat consumption has increased 5 times moving from 45 milion tons per year in 1950 to 233 milions tons per year in 2000. In the industrialized countries, 224 grams of meat have consumed per person every day, only from 2007 to 2008, meat produced in the world every year has increased from 275 to 280 million tons, FAO has esteemed that by 2050 will be produced 465 milion tons of meat a year. Even milk production, following predictions, is intended to grow fast moving from 580 milion tons of the two-year period 1999-2000 to 1043 milion tons by 2050.

CLASSICAL FARMING METHOD

AUTOMATIC FARM SOLUTION

 

In only 25 sqm, you can have a healthy, automated and economically viable crickets farm. AFS is the definitive solution to jump toward the future of insect farming in an ever-increasing market where demand is currently left unsatisfied. The traditional farming method can not tap to the novel food growing market demand. AFS doesn’t need any real estate investment: AFS cell looks like a container office, clean looking, easy to move and economically viable. The AFS cell can be self-sustainable with renewable energy, fully automated, fully compliant and efficient in all its aspects.

Risks and challenges

Now that you have understood how interesting, innovative and important our solution is, you merely need to decide how much you wish to take part in this evolution.

We know that you are biting at the bit to see what we have devised as a thank you for the help you wanted to offer in the finalisation of the AUTOMATIC FARM. Yes, we explicitly referred to its completion given that, as you saw, from the material that we proposed to you and the media that spoke about us directly, the cell already exists and only the last bureaucratic procedures remain.
By deciding to finance our solution, you will be amongst the first to be an integral part of a leap towards the future. You will be one of the few extraordinary people able to glimpse a real entrepreneurial idea in a project.

Of course, you can decide not to take this opportunity for a whole host of reasons. Fundamentally, nothing will change, except the fact that you will be part of that group of people who will undergo change without being direct supporters.

We put great consideration into how to reward our supporters, so we came up with 8 different solutions. We could have devised fewer, but in this way we would not be able to give everyone the opportunity to offer up their valuable help, given that we had to start with higher figures.

Why should you invest your money and become part of our dream?

- Because you would be investing in something that already exists and
has been tested.
- Because it is a real solution to real problems.
- Because it is a huge step forward in the means of husbandry.
- Because you understood the power of this solution.
- Because it works!
- Because you are amongst the extraordinary people who have
actively contributed to improving the world.
- Because you are not content with just seeing the opportunity, you
must utilise it.

Now, you just have to decide how much you wish to invest and... you will discover that we are closer to being acquainted than you imagined.
