What is our mission ?

Entomation is developing a resource-efficient and scalable method for cricket farming and processing for human consumption. This system enables us to contribute to food security.

We strive to make a product that is the first choice for Insect-Based Food Producers (IBFPs), not an alternative.

ABOUT

EATING INSECTS

As the global population is rising, food security is fast becoming a salient issue. Forecasts suggest by 2050 the demand for food will show a 70% increase. Current agricultural practices simply cannot sustain this rise.

We face multiple challenges around resource management. Issues like soil security are propelling the crisis closer. Our planet has lost one-third of its arable land in the last 40 years.

Can we continue to rely on the traditional animal-based protein sources and maintain the ability to feed an increasing population? We do not think so but do not worry, a lot of great minds are out there working on solutions. At Entomation we believe cricket farming can help ease some of the burdens. We heard the UN’s development goals and have been working towards them.

Two billion people already consume insects as part of their daily diet. In Europe and North America, a rapidly growing part of the population has already adopted this trend. Skepticism about eating insects is fading. The creations of world-class chefs using insects are contributing to changing minds on a large scale. Some of the best restaurants in the world, like Noma, are breaking the path in this new culinary revolution. Not only that, but established entrepreneurs and food producers around the globe are coming up with new and interesting ways to use insects in their products. These are the companies we are targeting with our product.

Good for the Planet you say but are they good for me?
Yes, crickets have an excellent nutritional profile. It may surprise you to hear but crickets contain all the essential amino acids, which makes them a complete protein. Among other nutrients, they consist of B12, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. More and more athletes are using insect protein, mainly due to just how little you need, allowing less downtime to digest between training sessions.

If the global population continues to rise and food security issues are not addressed, the world will fall into crisis. By 2050 the demand for food will show a 70% increase. Current agricultural practices cannot sustain this rise. One of the challenges we are facing is soil security, the planet has lost one-third of its arable land in the last 40 years. We cannot continue to rely on animal-based protein and maintain the ability to feed an increasing population.  

Two billion people already consume insects as part of their daily diet. In Europe and North America, a rapidly growing part of the population has already started adopting this trend. Preconceptions about eating insects are addressed through a number of ways. Institutions are working intensively with how to include insects in western diets, and the insect community has been doing a lot to normalize the practice through advocacy.

Crickets have an excellent nutritional profile and are much less resource intensive than traditional protein sources.

Crickets are a complete protein source and per 100 grams they contain:
