Educational Awareness Initiative:

By actively engaging in educational outreach, we raise awareness about the benefits of insect-based foods and sustainable food production practices. This helps overcome cultural barriers and fosters greater acceptance of insects as a viable and eco-friendly protein source.

Collaborative Advocacy:

We collaborate with academia, farmers, and suppliers to promote sustainable insect farming practices. This collaborative approach ensures that the entire supply chain adheres to environmentally responsible standards. Additionally, through engagement with regulatory bodies, we advocate for supportive policies that encourage sustainable insect farming and the use of insect-based products.

The agri-food sector has significant negative impacts on the environment
The Agri-Food Sector


The agri-food sector, while essential for providing food to the growing global population, has significant negative impacts on the environment.

Emits 30% of GHG*

* Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Source of Emissions:
The agri-food sector is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. The primary sources include enteric fermentation from ruminant animals (such as cattle), manure management, rice cultivation, and the use of synthetic fertilizers. Additionally, the transportation and processing of food products also contribute to emissions.

Methane and Nitrous Oxide:
Livestock digestion and manure decomposition release methane (a potent greenhouse gas), while the use of synthetic fertilizers leads to the emission of nitrous oxide. Both gases significantly contribute to climate change.

Uses 70% of Fresh Water

High Water Demand:
Agriculture is a water-intensive activity, and the agri-food sector accounts for a substantial portion of global water consumption. Irrigation, which is crucial for crop production, often leads to the depletion of freshwater resources.

Water Pollution:
Runoff from agricultural fields, containing fertilizers and pesticides, can contaminate nearby water bodies, causing water pollution. This not only affects aquatic ecosystems but also poses risks to human health.

Occupies 50% of the world's habitable land

Extensive Land Use:
Agriculture occupies a significant portion of the world's habitable land. The expansion of agricultural activities often results in deforestation and habitat destruction, leading to the loss of biodiversity.

Monoculture and Intensive Farming:
The agri-food sector's emphasis on monoculture and intensive farming practices can degrade soil quality, reduce biodiversity, and contribute to the loss of natural habitats.

Contributes to the Loss of Biological Diversity

Monoculture Practices:
Large-scale monoculture, where vast areas are dedicated to a single crop, reduces the diversity of plant and animal species in the affected regions. This can disrupt ecosystems, making them more vulnerable to pests and diseases.

Habitat Destruction:
The expansion of agricultural lands often involves clearing forests and other natural habitats, leading to the displacement of various plant and animal species. This habitat destruction contributes to the ongoing global biodiversity crisis.


Edible insects for human consumption represent a sustainable and versatile solution that addresses multiple environmental and food-related goals. Their cultivation and consumption contribute to reducing the carbon footprint, conserving soil biodiversity, providing nutritious food for a growing population, minimizing food waste, and promoting increased biodiversity in agricultural systems.

Crickets vs Animals

Less Feed

Crickets require a smaller amount of feed compared to traditional animal protein sources.








Crickets vs Animals

Less Water

Crickets require less water than animals and can be grown throughout droughts, showcasing their resilience and suitability for sustainable farming.








Crickets vs Animals

Less Greenhouse Gases

Crickets produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emission than animal protein sources. The only insects that produce methane as a waste product are cockroaches, termites, and scarab beetles.








Crickets vs Animals

Less Space Required

Crickets don't mind living in highly dense populations. They're often frozen, which puts them in a dormant state called diapause. Then they are placed in a deeper freeze, which kills them humanely.









Carbon Footprint Reduction

Efficient Feed Conversion:
Insects are highly efficient in converting feed into protein. They have a lower feed conversion ratio compared to traditional livestock, such as cattle and pigs. This efficiency leads to reduced resource requirements, including land, water, and feed, contributing to a lower carbon footprint in food production.

Lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions:
Insects generally produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional livestock. The reduced methane emissions from insect farming contribute to mitigating climate change and achieving carbon footprint reduction goals.

Conservation and Improvement of Soil Biodiversity

Low Land Requirements:
Insect farming requires less land compared to conventional livestock farming. This helps reduce deforestation and habitat destruction, contributing to the conservation of soil biodiversity.

Diversification of Agriculture:
Integrating insect farming diversifies agricultural practices, reducing the environmental impact associated with monoculture. This diversity supports healthier soils and ecosystems, fostering improved soil biodiversity.

Ensuring Nutritious and Safe Food in Response to Global Food Demand

Rich in Nutrients:
Edible insects are a rich source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Incorporating insects into the human diet helps address nutritional deficiencies, particularly in regions where protein is scarce, contributing to the goal of ensuring nutritious and safe food for a growing global population.

Sustainable Protein Source:
As the demand for protein increases, insects provide a sustainable and efficient alternative to conventional livestock. Their cultivation requires fewer resources, making them a viable solution to meet the protein demands of a growing population.

Food Waste Reduction/Recycling

Organic Waste Conversion:
Many insect species can be fed on organic waste, such as food scraps and agricultural by-products. By converting organic waste into insect biomass, the insects contribute to recycling nutrients and reducing the environmental impact of waste disposal.

Circular Economy Integration:
Insect farming can be integrated into a circular economy, where food waste becomes a valuable resource for insect feed. The resulting insect products can then be utilized as feed for other animals or directly consumed by humans, closing the loop on food waste and promoting sustainability.

Increasing Biodiversity

Diverse Species Cultivation:
The cultivation of various insect species for human consumption introduces biodiversity into agricultural systems. This diversification supports ecosystem resilience and contributes to increased biodiversity, promoting a more balanced and sustainable environment.

Preserving Natural Habitats:
By requiring less land for farming, insect cultivation helps preserve natural habitats. This preservation is crucial for maintaining biodiversity by preventing the conversion of diverse ecosystems into monoculture agricultural landscapes.
