Hexafly wins at National Enterprise Awards

Hexafly wins award for Innovation at the National Enterprise Awards

Meath based Hexafly have won the award for the Innovation category at this year’s National Enterprise Awards ceremony in the Mansion House. 

The awards are organised by the Local Enterprise Offices every year to celebrate Ireland's micro-enterprises.

The Taoiseach, Mr. Enda Kenny T.D. speaking at the Awards said: “Congratulations to all the micro-enterprises and small businesses that are being honoured and celebrated through the National Enterprise Awards this year. The winners here tonight are examples of the confidence, ambition and creative talent at Ireland’s core.”

Hexafly supplies sustainable natural commodities to the animal feed, plant nutrition and Bio-polymer industries.  They do this by using insects to up-cycle vegetation into proteins, oils, fertilizers and chitin. The company is currently partnering with multinationals, such as Diageo and Nutreco as both customers and suppliers, and various international governmental organizations from Africa to China.

Currently employing five, the company plans to open its new facility at Ashbourne in June and begin producing insect oil and powder and fertiliser in September. Once the Meath facility is successfully up and running, Hexafly plans to open two more in Ireland as well as one in the UK and to franchise or license its technology globally, targeting China, India, the US, and West Africa.
