Insects for food and feed

The Insects for Food and Feed (INSEFF) project initiative aims to exploit the use of insects as alternative sources of food for human consumption and feed for livestock. The project has captured the imagination of the global research and donors as well as the general public. This is because insects are ubiquitous: they reproduce quickly, have high growth and feed conversion rates and low environmental impact. Insects are also valuable sources of minerals and vitamins essential for human development.

Mission & Vision

The goal of the project is to contribute to improving food and feed security and economic wellbeing of smallholder producers while enhancing the quality of the environment through insect-based technologies and innovations in a sustainable manner for nutritional and food security
