Our finite (food) chain

Since the industrial revolution, humanity has experienced unprecedented growth and prosperity. Raw materials and energy seemed unlimited and mass production became the norm. In recent years there has been a growing awareness that raw materials are indeed finite and that the linear system of ‘Take, Make, Waste’ has and continues to damage the planet to a great extent.


Factoring in a population growth to around 9 billion people in 2050 and the ever-increasing demand this will cause, and it quickly becomes clear that the current linear model is not sustainable. In the food chain, we are sacrificing tropical rain forests for agriculture and overfishing the oceans for decades causing massive changes to the world we live in. Apart from the ecological impact, there is simply too little land and water to meet the high demand for protein that is coming our way.


JORS has been founded to help accelerate the transformation to a circular economy. By introducing missing links, like insects, and closing loops in linear models, ensuring a better, sustainable future.


Waste is just a waste, and when it accumulates it becomes damaging. In nature, the waste from one process becomes the food for the next. All materials are used in cycles.

- David Attenborough -


Closed Loops

The circular economy is an economic system of closed cycles in which raw materials, components and products lose their value as little as possible, renewable energy sources are used and systems thinking is central. Circular systems are strongly based on, and interact with, nature.


Insects are naturally powerful ‘upcyclers’ and extremely suitable to close loops in agriculture and creating circular food systems.


Insects have the amazing ability to turn low-grade food ‘waste’ into valuable high-end proteins and fats. Free from soy and produced both locally and vertically, insects also have a low ecological footprint and are a perfectly sustainable alternative to regular protein sources.


What we do?


from waste to wholesale

JORS recognizes the (protein) challenges of the current food industry. From introducing new sources like insect protein to creating circular loops. JORS is here to help the food industry evolve quicker, working on education, research, adoption, and partnering to create sustainable value chains. 


JORS participates in international research like SUSINCHAIN. 


We also guide student groups from Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUAS) on topics related to sustainable food chains. 


Adoption of insects and other alternative protein sources is a major hurdle for Western society.


Through various, educational, initiatives, JORS tries to increase the adoption of such protein sources in feed and food. 


The circular economy depends on strong value chains. 


We love to help your organisation building circular value chains through partnerships or freelance assignments.


Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.


JORS supports the SDGs, but focuses in particular on; SDG 2, SDG 14 and SDG 15.
