WHY EAT CRICKETS?
THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE NUTRITION
Throughout the ages, insects have been a main protein source in the Paleolithic diets of the earliest hunter-gathers to the modern diets of people all over the world today. Currently, 80% of the world’s nations regularly eat insects, being a key staple in their diet in Central and South America, Africa, and Asia.
Each year the population increases by around 70 million people. In a 2013 report by the United Nations, it is expected that at this rate of growth, in 2050 the population is expected to be 9.6 billion people. To be able to meet the nutritional demands of all these people, food production will need to nearly double. A possible solution, insects!
