Global FOODture workshop: Insects as the future of food proteins?

Insects have a huge potential when it comes to the valorization of sources that are not suitable for feed/ food production, like manure and biowaste streams. Companies are collaborating to scale and extend the market for insects for food, which we will show during this session.

  • Edible insect products for human consumption in Europe
  • Insects and valorisation of by-products
