Six Foods

We use crickets milled into a flour to make tortilla chips (Chirps) that are familiar to Americans. We want to normalize insect foods, starting with snacks to meat. The goal is to substitute animal protein with insect protein, thus converting livestock farming to insect farming. By doing so, we will reduce land & water usage, and green gases.
