VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — On Aug. 3, Eat & Beyond Global Holdings Inc. announced it had completed its acquisition of 50% of shares and 100% of outstanding capital warrants in Goldbloom Enterprises Inc.

Eat & Beyond Global Holdings is an investment issuer specializing in equity investments in innovative food technology and sustainability companies. Goldbloom Enterprises is an emerging player in the black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) space. According to Eat & Beyond, Goldbloom is “poised to become an industry leader” in this sector.

Goldbloom upcycles materials to produce sustainable protein from BSFL for use in pet food and treat production, livestock and aquaculture feed, and cosmetic and pharmaceutical manufacturing. This process creates a byproduct of naturally fertilized soil, which can then be repurposed.

According to Goldbloom, the company is led by various industry experts in the fields of pet food, protein sourcing and entomology. James Delany serves as founder and president of the company, bringing more than 30 years of experience in the pet food and protein sectors. Ayesha Jabeen serves as entomologist at the company and holds a master’s degree in environmental science with an emphasis on entomology from the University of Guelph.

Goldbloom operates a 20,000-square-foot grow facility near Guelph and has corporate offices in Toronto.
