Due to the uncontrollable rise of the global population, the future of food will rely more and more on insect-based products.
Since 2003, FAO has been working on topics pertaining to edible insects as a sustainable food source in order to meet the challenge of population growth.
It is widely accepted that by 2050 the world will host 9 billion people. Insects are a healthy food source as they are rich in proteins, have good fats and are high in minerals.
Don’t be squeamish, close your eyes and taste the challenge of survival.
