We create deliciously daring foods powered by the most nutritious and sustainable food source available: edible insects.
We also offer food workshops and lectures on topics related to edible insects, climate change, food security and entrepreneurship.
We are inspired by the 2 billion people around the world in Africa, Asia and Latin America, who have rich cultures and traditions of eating insects and who see insects as a delicacy.
Apart from being exceptionally nutritious and delicious, insects also offer a viable solution to tackling climate change. Insects are far more efficient at converting feed and water into protein than chicken, pigs or cattle, they are free from pesticides and antibiotics and they take up very little space.

Our journey began when the insect-expert on the team, Malena, cooked up a risotto with wox moth larvae for our first dinner together.
It wasn't love at first sight for Jessica, coming from a social fashion start up, but the overwhelming arguments in favour of eating insects provided all the courage needed to take the first bite. And it turned out to be delicious.
We agreed that if we want to make this future food a reality, we have to present it in a more appetising manner. So we began experimenting with insect flour, a tasty and nutritiously dense light powder without the visible legs and wings.
Together with Maria Green, graphic designer and equally enthusiastic bug-eater, we developed a daring yet appealing identity to spur up curiosity and create awareness without scaring people away.
We are passionate about creating delicious and nutritious products with insects in order to expand gastronomic horizons and protect the environment.
