The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations urge people in North America to embrace different food and feed options as we approach the year 2050- the year by which our global population will be over 9 billion people. We already have food security issues. We already have feed issues. Our current farming and agricultural methods for protein are unsustainable for our environment. They already consume too many of our limited natural resources of arable land and fresh water with high carbon footprint levels and methane emissions, and they cannot scale to feed so many more people.
Entomo Farms raises and produces the highest quality insect ingredients that are easily added into any diet, providing healthy nutrients to people, and alleviating the strain on the environment caused by current agricultural practices. Entomo Farms worked diligently to produce a refined insect powder of 100% organic, dry-roasted crickets, because they knew that trying to convince westerners to crunch on critters might be a very challenging task. Consumers can now easily add the nutrient-dense protein powder into anything they cook or bake; cookies, muffins, breads, soups, salad dressings, smoothies, etc. The powder barely changes the taste, the nutrients are then packed into a food that might otherwise have very little nutritional value, and the ecological ‘foodprint’ of that food is small when compared to any other protein source.
