Why use insects in their diet ?

For too long, our pets' food bowls have been filled with poor quality food. We rarely know where it comes from, how it is made, or what impact it has on the environment.

Tomojo's recipe replaces conventional animal meat with insect protein. Their production uses fewer of our precious natural resources and also requires no growth hormones or antibiotics.

Discover our story

Behind Tomojo, there are two childhood friends, Madeleine and Paola, a militant dog (Mojo) and an ecological cat (Hiro). They all agree that we must act for the planet by consuming differently! "One evening, I was looking at Mojo, who weighs 50kg, and I thought that even if I was careful with my meat consumption, he ate meat every single day and that maybe that was something to look into.

The two childhood friends found themselves in the same Master of Environmental Sciences in London in 2015. They returned to France and embarked on their entrepreneurship adventure, participating in Ticket For Change. Their idea was to find a less polluting substitute to meat. They then discovered insect proteins and their nutritional properties. They were assisted by a veterinarian specialized in animal nutrition and by two AgroParisTech researchers to formulate the first Tomojo recipe.
