Many projections have suggested that the world population will reach over 9 billion by 2050. This means that the current food production will also have to be doubled. In light of worsening resource shortage, several foods have been proposed as alternatives, with insects receiving the most attention. This is because insects have the amazing ability to turn low-grade food waste into valuable high-end proteins and fats.
In this regard, a Netherlands-based insect farming startup Protix is working towards bringing the food system back in balance with nature.
