Our Story

We are a few young entrepreneurs from South Africa, trying to change the world one scoop at a time. We have always dreamed of making a difference in the world and ensuring that every single one of us has a better future to look forward to. You hear stories of the 19th century researchers doing crazy experiments in their laboratories. Well, our early days were no different, except it started in a kitchen…

After Leah completed her Masters in Food Science, studying insects as a alternative source of protein, she joined forces with Jean to explore various avenues of introducing insects into the South African market. As true entrepreneurs do, they researched, created, and experimented with various products before finally focusing their efforts on the dairy alternatives industry.

 

Soon after, EntoMilk™ was born!

Our Mission

We want to redefine the way you thinks of insects as an alternative food source and, specifically, an alternative dairy product. By challenging the way you perceive insects, we can move away from the ‘novelty food’ aspects of insect-based foods and start integrating insects into our daily diets.

But we know change takes time and requires incremental steps, even more so when the change centers around what we eat and drink. By using ice cream as our vessel, we invite you to try something out of the ordinary and truly treat your senses.

Given our complete commitment to making insects a part of everyone’s diet, we are dedicated to walking an educational path with each of our customers and we invite you to reach out to us with any questions or comments. We will be publishing monthly blog posts to allow you to learn with us.

In the near future we will be supplying healthy, nutritious, sustainable and affordable dairy alternatives to the urban spaces near you.
