People in many countries have very restricted access to protein in their daily diets, some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life and many more are undernourished .(WFP Hunger statistics). Governments in many underdeveloped countries are turning to the farming of insects to help fill this gap. One of the companies pioneering this in the UK is Mophagy and I was fortunate to meet Harry Harrison, one of the co-founders, earlier this year.
He gave me a real insight into this relatively new food industry and some samples to try too.
