Last month was a busy one for the insect start-ups in Denmark. It was the season for food festivals and food conferences and since edible insects are the hottest subject on the food scene right now, we were all fully booked.
Among the many guests at both conferences and foodfestivals was Massimo Reverberi . Massimo is chairman of AFFIA (The Asean Food and Feed Insect Association) and founder of Bugsolutely, a company that makes cricket pasta. He had a pretty full schedule too. Speaking at both the Technolotical Institute in Aarhus and at the food conference, “Innovative Food” and just before leaving he found time to participate in the TechBBQ festival promoting his delicious cricket pasta.
Insects as food is definitely coming to stay in Denmark. There are several seroius start-ups selling insectbased products and a scientific innovation project, InValuable with the vision of creating a sustainable resource-efficient industry for animal protein production based on mealworms. Denmark is therefore the place to be if you are interested in edible insects.
