FOOD WASTE IS A GLOBAL PROBLEM

  • Food loss and food waste is the decrease of food volume intended for human consumption in all stages of the food supply chain, from harvesting down to consumption, regardless of the reasons.
  • 1.6 billion tons of food losses and waste that are formed in the world annually
  • Most of the food waste finds its way into landfills and produces methane, which is 25 times more potent greenhouse gas than the CO2.

UPCOMING PROTEIN DEFICIT

  • Protein consumption is on the rise globally due to the population growth and dramatic changes in consumption.
  • Insects protein consumption has two main applications: feed for domestic animals and human consumption.
It is estimated that the global population will reach 9.6 billion by 2050
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that food production will need to increase by 70%
