There is a worldwide search for new and sustainable protein sources that can feed a growing population without burdening our environment.

Crickets and grasshoppers offer the perfect solution for this. Very little water, land and feed is used in the breeding of these animals. This means it has a low impact on the environment. They are also naturally packed with vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium and vitamin B12. It is everything your body needs, a real superfood!

We have opted for crickets and grasshoppers because these animals have their own unique nutty and savoury taste that we like to use in our products. Because we process them in a special way, we create products that are tasty and accessible. For example our Krekelburger, where the unique taste of the cricket is preserved. In this way we want to change the perception of eating insects and make them part of our daily diet.
