Denmark takes a lead on insect feed and food

Signal of change / Denmark takes a lead on insect feed and food

By Roman Klein / 10 Jan 2018

Is Denmark emerging as a leader in promoting and enabling insect food and feed? It's the first country to make a movie about edible insects ('Bugs' by Andreas Johnsen); the first country to have a team of experienced chefs developing recipes with critters (the Nordic Food Lab), and the first country to have a government financing bugs as food and feed.

So what?

Denmark hosts a number of edible insect start-ups and a vibrant bug scene: will it become a global hub for insect innovation, attracting other entrepreneurs and investors?
