There was quite a bit of interest over the Christmas holidays from people in Victoria looking to obtain edible insects for themselves or as gifts.
Just to keep everyone updated, the best source for edible insects in Victoria at the moment is Health Essentials.
They’re at 101-300 Gorge Road West.
Here at Inspro Foods, we cannot tell you how excited we are about the recent opening of Insect Point in Holland.
This innovative collaboration involving the Application Centre for Renewable Resources and the Applied Plant Research Department at Wageningen University are looking to address some of the major issues facing insect farmers and insect food producers around the world. If we can get past the problems of scale and farming efficiency to bring down the price of insect proteins to mass-market levels, we can really start to see the benefits of this amazing food source brought to the Western consumer.
That’s what Inspro Foods is all about and we look forward to becoming involved in the project.
Here at Inspro Foods, we’re always excited to see innovative uses of insect proteins in forms which remove the “Ew!” factor for western consumers.
As such, we’re very happy to see the Bug Chef‘s new piece in National Geographic on fun and innovative insect recipes.
The more of this we can encourage, the faster we’ll spread the word of the benefits of insect protein.
