Pablo Pena, Business Development Manager, Ynsect
Pablo Pena is business development manager at Ynsect Human Nutrition & Health, a French Agri-tech leader producing sustainable and nutritional ingredients for the food industry from food-grade farmed insects. YHN&H is the first to realize production of insect-based food ingredients on a large scale that are easily accessible and applicable for the current food market. One of Pablo’s goals is the international deployment of the world’s first insect-based, functional ingredient range. Besides digestible protein, the ingredients also contain essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fibres, and healthy fats. The high-quality food ingredients can add value to applications such as sports nutrition, meat (alternatives), pasta, baked goods and many more.
