Press release from: Bugsolutely

May 4, 2018 – According to the most recent market survey by Meticulous Research, the edible insect market will be worth almost one billion Euro by 2023.

The product range is also growing and includes energy bars like SENS, www.sensbar.com, who are also showcasing at Seeds&Chips, snack bars from Kriket, www.kriket.be, cricket pasta from Bugsolutely (www.bugsolutely.com), along with insect chips, mealworm tomato sauce, cricket cookies and limitless possibilities for the future. "We believe the market is ready for insects. We see it not only among consumers with SENS bars, but also when selling cricket flour with Cricket Lab. 2018 is the year of insects!”, said Radek Husek, CMO and Co-Founder of Sens.

Specialized distributors and retailers such as Alma Eureka are helping to expand the bug market, and other companies are working on optimizing insect farming technologies, like the Nordic Insect Economy (NIE). Alma Eureka and NIE will also be at Seeds&Chips, providing their vision for the edible insect industry to large audience present for the Summit, including thousands of food industry professionals, producers, distributors, media, and investors. “Because the idea is great, it’s getting traction with business angels and venture capitalists. A meat that is tasty, nutritionally rich and easy to produce is an opportunity we should not lose”, declared Emanuele Torlonia, Scouting Manager of Startupbootcamp FoodTech.
