Information on Keynote presenter

Johan Jacobs, CEO of Circular Organics

Working as a Belgian diplomat around the world for ten years, Johan Jacobs personally witnessed today’s major global challenge: as the world population continues to grow and consumption patterns remain the same, the need for ever more resources and food increases as do associated waste streams. Unhindered by his Master’s degrees in International Politics and General Economics, Johan founded the cleantech start-up Millibeter™ in 2012. Millibeter™ was acquired by AgriProtein™ in November 2018 and has been subsequently integrated into the Insect Technology Group™ (ITG) under the brand Circular Organics™ alongside Agriprotein and Multicycle as the other two ITG businesses.

Circular Organics™ applies cutting edge insect technology on EU-approved agricultural by-products and organic waste. These by-products and organic wastes are processed into protein, oil and soil products for feed, food, and other applications.
