Abstract: There is an urgent need for more sustainable sources of protein to feed an ever-growing population in a world that is facing different environmental challenges and issues. The black soldier fly farming and treatment process can be a viable solution to upscale organic waste material and convert them into usable protein. In Quezon Province in the Philippines, there are a few potential municipalities that are ideal to start the BSF livelihood program that is relevant to the communities. These municipalities have a strong agricultural sector that provides the relevant employment opportunities and a potential source for feedstock in organic agricultural waste. They also have existing municipal-level waste segregation and are able to generate substantial amounts of organic waste. The study discusses the development of a program that allows small scale farmers to be self-sufficient with an innovative technology that promotes the circular economy model by closing the nutrient and resource loops. To ensure its impact and effectiveness, the program needs to be supported by an inclusive business model ecosystem that allows the BSF industry to flourish and create the needed positive social effects and environmental benefits.
