Cricket pasta anyone..? Or maybe you’d prefer a Mealworm salad?! Find out what all the insect hype is about! Discover innovative products in the food and agriculture tech space, and learn about future foods such as insects, fungi and more!

Insects are chock-full of protein and rich in essential micronutrients, such as iron and zinc. They need less space than livestock, emit lower levels of greenhouse gases, and a single kilogram of feed yields 12 times more edible cricket protein than beef protein.
