Oberland Agriscience Inc. Q&A

September 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free
Are you interested in a career working in the bioeconomy, converting underutilized organic resources into valuable, low-carbon products?

Topic: Oberland Agriscience Inc. Q&A

Join us to learn more as we hear from the people behind Oberland Agriscience (Oberland), a Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) farm based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Oberland takes pre-consumer organic waste and uses it to grow BSFL, creating high-value alternative proteins and fertilizers with drastically lower carbon emissions than traditional sources.

Oberland will speak about the types of careers the company offers now and in the future, and you’ll have the chance to ask questions to company leadership. Also joining the session is a recent participant in the Careers in Sustainability Internship program, who has since become a permanent, full-time employee at Oberland.
