Novel Food

European Union says « yes ! » to insect consumption!

By 2018, this statement will probably be true. Indeed, the Belgian Bug Industry Federation (BIIF) has signed a contract with KeyFood for the composition of two “novel food” records. The cricket, Acheta domesticus and the mealworms, Tenebrio Molitor, will probably soon appear on the plates of all Europeans.

This legislative opening would be an enormous step forward for the sector, which is in its stammering and remains confined to a handful of European nations. The actors of this approach invite all industry professionals to come take part in their initiative.
