Entomos: Our Story
Entomos: an insect story since 2009
Entomos AG was founded in December 2009 as a spin-off of the Andermatt Group. The group exists since 1988 and offers products for the biological protection of crops around the world. In addition to numerous awards, the Andermatt Group received in 2007 the Corporate Award from the Swiss Environmental Foundation.
Entomos: first company in Switzerland allowed to breed and sell edible insects
Entomos AG can rely on more than 25 years of know-how and has operated its own edible insects since the end of 2016. Since obtaining its official authorization issued by the federal authorities on July 7th 2017, Entomos AG is the first authorized company in Switzerland to breed and sell edible insects.
On January 1, 2019, the company was taken over by entrepreneur Jean-Yves Cuendet, also owner of FABiLiS SA. Since that time, Entomos has been working in Freienbach (SZ) in cooperation with the start-up Insekterei GmbH.
At the end of 2019, another major change occurred with the takeover of the Freienbach's production facilities by entrepreneur and musician Dieter Meier from the renowned Swiss music group Yello. This takeover involved a relocation of Entomos and a new start of a cooperation with Ensectable AG in Endingen.
