The UN released a study about food and feed security considering the future of population growth. If we are to be prepared for the next several years we need to make fundamental changes in the way we consume resources.
By this time, the world's population is expected to grow to 9.2 Billion people. This new growth will present straigns on our current food value chain. It is predicted that meat prices will rise as there the amount of arrable land decreases. Also the urban, slum population will increase substantially while many people will not have access to access to clean water. In order to support this growth we will need to depend on less resource intensive food sources like insects.
While we may reject the idea of eating insects, the reality is that insects are a culinary delight enjoyed by over 2 billion people across the world. People in Latin America, Southeast Asia, Africa and now Western Europe and the United States have a rich tradition of including insects in their diet.
Chapufarms is focused on fueling the new food revolution with cricket powder and other insect-based products. We are headquartered in Beautiful BC, Canada and handle most of our operations in Oaxaca Mexico where entomophagy runs deep in the local culture. We are a group of Canadian entrepreneurs and engineers that care deeply about the environment and the future of our planet. For many reasons widely discussed and now than ever as the public is made more aware about the opportunities in the global food value chain, we should look for alternative protein sources that are more sustainable and less resource intensive.
