Pioneer of industrialization of BSF larvae, Magalarva reduces organic waste into super food for animals

Magalarva has received initial funding from Salim Group's Innovation Factory and Gree Venture, as well as the Bali Investment Club

Rendria Arsyan Labde didn't expect to be exposed to smelly things sustainable farming leading him to become a larval pioneer black soldier fly (BSF) in Indonesia, via Magalarva. Previously he was blind about BSF, but now he was able to find the right and efficient formula for larvae production and even exported to various countries.

He briefly entered the property business as a sustainable housing developer. After carrying it out, it turned out that the impact that could escalate was not as massive as he had predicted. Rendria digs further starting from urban issues, encountering increasingly serious waste issues.

The waste awareness movement that has been promoted so far has only focused on non-organic waste. Even though the amount of organic waste is much greater, around 70% of the data he found. From a series of research carried out, he first encountered BSF larvae in Central Java. This type of maggot is different from what he knows so far because when it eats, it devours it so quickly.
