Minibeasts Enterprises was first developed as a hobby to supply primarily scorpions to a small number of pet stores in Victoria. However stores identified a need for a reliable supplier of insects to feed the increasing reptile trade and more effort was put towards producing live food than supplying actual pets.
A change in business ownership saw Minibeasts grow significantly during 2010, with development of the Minibeasts Enterprises patented Value Bucket and refinement of culturing processes.
In early 2012, Minibeasts Enterprises was purchased by Phillip and Kate Kerr, who have not a fascination but obsession with reptiles, fish and all animals great and small! Again the business has increased significantly (Phillip practically lives here) with further refinements in insect breeding systems, increased production, new product lines, merchandising and logistics. Minibeasts has grown significantly and has become a preferred supplier to many Independent Petstores throughout Australia looking to stand out from the crowd!
