Why use insects in their diet ?

Through Tomojo, we wanted to provide dog and cat owners with a new alternative: a balanced recipe for our animals while working for sustainable development.

Choosing insect protein also means choosing a traceable protein source rich in amino acids.

MADE IN FRANCE

Today, we have succeeded in bringing together actors we trust and in selecting products that are irreproachable and traceable. We are proud to be able to count among our ingredients more than 16 French products. Located in Mayenne, our manufacturers take care of the production of our pet food with the greatest care and above all a lot of love.

Insects raised in Holland and France

The insects used in the manufacture of Tomojo pet food are raised on certified farms and fed a balanced blend of locally sourced, agricultural residues.
We use Hermetia Illucens insects (otherwise known as black soldier flies) that are raised in France and Holland.

RECYCLABLE PACKAGING

We also focus on our recyclable packaging. We produce our bags in Italy, the leader in recyclable bags.

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.
