We want to contribute to establishing the new insect food market. Why? Insects hold great potential for lowering the amount of energy, water and farm land involved in producing animal protein, in brief: they have a great carbon footprint. In addition they exhibit valuable profiles in vitamins, iron, zinc and amino acids. While farming insects is today still in its infancy, with a lot of manual work and little technological assistance, i.e. it is expensive, this will change with upscaling and automatisation in the future, making insects a cost-efficient source of animal protein. Consumer uptake is an obstacle in the Western Hemisphere, that is why we develop processed insect foods rather than sell whole insects.
