More than Profit

At Essento, we are committed to having a positive impact on you, your health and our planet.

Animal Welfare

We are convinced that edible insects must be sourced from breeders, who are setting insect welfare as their priority. We have built strong partnerships and are in regular exchange with the farmers to ensure this is the case.

Global / Local

We think globally and act locally. We are involved in the local value chain wherever possible. Therefore, it is not by chance that all our delicacies are hand-made by us in Zurich.

Sustainability and Quality

We have high demands regarding the quality and sustainability of our products. We exclusively use insects from breeding farms in Switzerland and the EU and carefully select our natural and honest ingredients.


We contribute with our work to a considerate society, who is aware of the importance of their diet. Our educational activities help us make this difference.
