Advantages of Eri Silkworm puppae


  1. Eri Silk is domesticated and is easily produced in large volumes without a significant facility, equipment or production cost. 
  2. The cost of the facility, equipment for commercial insect production is enormous. 
  3. Eri Silk pupa is 80% of the weight of the silk cocoon providing greater weight then others vary.
  4. Eri silkworm is very stainable because of being drought and disease resistant and produces a very large silk cocoon and pupa.
  5. The production cost of the silk and dryer silk power which is 50% protein is much less than others varies.
  6. Eri silk pupa is a formulated product and a historical mainstay and delicacy in East Asia and many other regions. 
  7. Eri silk eat un-sprayed Custer leaves and their consumption is much more palatable to new consumers because of familiar and the fact that they are raised in a totally serial environment that is comforting to consumers.  
  8. The big insect producing projects in Europe are using large high-tech robotic production plants for crickets and grasshoppers at great expense. The insects are feed garbage and waste mater that is contaminated with bacteria, viruses, etc.
  9. There are only two primary sources of plant-based protein and Mung and other beans only provide 10 % protein and don’t have the full blend of amino acids compliment. The pupa is 50 % protein. 
  10. Most corporate funding of insect production is still for animal feed which has many stainable and environmental drawbacks.
  11. None of the insects that are currently being reared for protein provides the opportunity for a series of commercial value addition and emprises. Eri Silk production provides silk shells, yarn, and cloth; fresh worms, pupa, dried worms, and pupa; production and sale of Custer seed and oil; sale of fresh as a high valued fertilizer and full range of pupa products. 
  12. The production of alternative protein already has major price and production challenges in meeting the industries’ demand.
  13. Tosheka offers low wage option for large scale silk production by households and large-scale producers and investors. We can pay our farmers and workers a wage that will inspire them because of our sales and value addition.  Eri Silkworms are a byproduct of the silk industry and are fed only with leaves from Custer bush – a perfect circular economy.
