“Insects are the future.
We need to identify alternative protein sources with urgency, and insects have great potential in contributing to global food security.
Insect-based feed products could have a similar market to fishmeal and soy, which are presently the major components used in feed formulae for aquaculture and livestock. Also, it takes much less feed and land to produce a kilogram of insect protein than a kilogram of meat protein.
However, the relevant current legislation and regulation must be reviewed to make sure this type of mini-livestock is allowed to make their way into animal feed.
This whitepaper contains valuable information on the advantages and disadvantages of insects in animal feed. It also gives you a clear view on the current legislations and the changes that need to be made.”
