About us

Livefoods Direct is Britain's foremost supplier of livefoods and associated products. Until fairly recently it was know as The Mealworm Company but has been under the same ownership since it was established in Sheffield (UK) more than 25 years ago. The company specialises in breeding a wide range of invertebrate species including mealworms, locusts and crickets to less familiar kinds such as waxworms and several flies.

Livefoods Direct has recently added a small range of equipment including heating, lighting, etc with applications for herpetologists, bird keepers and other small livestock enthusiasts.

Each week throughout the year Livefoods Direct breeds a minimum of 9,000,000 mealworms, 2,500,000 crickets. 110,000 locusts and a broad range of other species.
