Edible insects are now considered to be an alternative source of protein for a human population set to increase by 2 billion by 2050. Yet a competitive production method still needs to be found.
We ask researchers and future manufacturers how they are trying to overcome the challenges involved in this new type of farming to turn it into a substantial French and European industrial sector.
