Crickets: a sustainable source with high potential

HIGH PROTEIN VALUE

Crickets are the future super-food. They are packed with minerals and vitamins and are made up of 71% protein – much more than in any of the traditional meat protein sources – which basically means a bite of cricket is a bite of protein.

A LOW ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

Plus, farming crickets has a negligible environmental footprint, particularly in comparison to the water used and CO2 consumed to raise farm animals. For example, the amount of water and carbon used is a tiny fraction compared to raising 1kg of beef, and crickets take just 7/100 the amount of feed.
