About Us

FlyFarm is an agricultural technology start-up based in Hong Kong.

We are focusing on developing IoT controls system with automation and robotics to power a high tech insect breeding facility.

We produce sustainable animal feed to replace the use of wild caught fishmeal in poultry & fish farming and plan to build a network of farm scale facilities in appropriate locations across Asia & Australia.

In our development labs, we are developing cutting edge robotics, remote monitoring and control systems for insect farming.

Who we're looking for

FlyFarm is developing processes and technology to power high-tech insect breeding facilities. Our goal is to upcycle food waste into high grade insect protein and oil for use in animal feeds and pet food (displacing unsustainable fish meal caught in the oceans). Combining Robotics, IoT and cloud technologies, FlyFarm is working hard to meet the challenges of developing a network of highly automated farms across APAC.

The mechanical engineer works in a multidisciplinary tech team that drives the automation and designs the mechanical aspects of our insect farming production processes. We are looking for a passionate and hands-on person with a can-do attitude who is excited by the prospect of taking the automation and mechanical processes of a high tech insect farm to the next level.
