WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?
We at Entis see insects as an excellent alternative source of nutrition. Insects are comparable to meat in their nutritional value – yet growing them creates far less greenhouse gases and takes very little water in contrast to the meat industry.
Dried house crickets contain even up to 70% protein and they're also high in calcium, iron and vitamin B12. Crickets also contain all the amino acids that are essential for humans.
Entis aims to create insect food products that are easy to approach and will tingle your taste buds every time!

FROM IDEA TO ACTION
Entis first saw the light of day in January 2017, when 5 like-minded students crossed paths at a startup- course that had brought together different branches of the university of Turku.
The diverse bunch quickly found their own tune and so the idea of an insect food company emerged.
Itching to make it happen, the team started to work on their dream to make it a reality. Not long after, the first Entis product – 20 grams of dried Finnish house crickets - was launched. It wasn’t as simple as it sounds though, given that at the time of release insects were not legally speaking food. But Team Entis saw this as only a minor bump in the road, and soon the black Entis bags of “eye- candy” found its way onto the shelves of eco-store chain Ruohonjuuri and other smaller retailers.
The pioneering work on the new field of insect food paid off sooner than expected when insects were legalized and approved for human consumption in September 2017. So began a furious product development process and the first fruits of all the hard work can be found on the shelves of Finland’s biggest grocery stores and also in Entis’ own international web store.
