#Ynsecter – Nicolas Compayré, Universal Agent


He receives supplies and deliveries, ensures that everything is organized in our vertical farm, looks after the well-being of his colleagues, and keeps the fridges stocked. In fact, Nicolas describes himself as a factory mother! He joined Ynsect more than two years ago as a Universal Agent at the Dole site. Nicolas is able to be so versatile because, before Ynsect, he did many things. Trained as a geologist, he worked as a market gardener, functional analyst, consultant, forklift operator, and logistics assistant. During his last two jobs, he was a universal agent, and appreciated being able to work on so many different topics. He decided to leave his job as an order picker and joined the Ynsect adventure a few months later.


For Nicolas, there are no secrets within his daily work: to be successful in his job, it is necessary to listen and be helpful to his colleagues! His role is important to the company because he allows others to flourish in the workplace and always finds solutions to their problems. Moreover, among the values of the company, Nicolas chooses solidarity without hesitation: it is essential in his eyes to succeed in facing challenges. So, no grumbling: a smile is required! His is a welcoming face that you will find at the entrance.


A great fan of science fiction, Nicolas works in a kind of movie set: the first vertical farm in the world. He describes the project as futuristic and visionary, but it’s his daily reality, lulled by the sound of the farm.
