In Italy, companies involved in the edible insects sector have had to face additional difficulties due to a more restrictive interpretation that national Institutions have applied to Regulation 2283/2015 on Novel Foods.
Few days left to the definitive green light for the production and marketing in Europe of edible insects as food (and as feed), so let’s see which Italian operators are active in the sector.
Fucibo: food production (pasta, chips, crackers, etc.)
21bites: multi-brand online marketing
Alia Insect Farm: crickets breeding
Inef: mealworms breeding
Nutrinsect: crickets breeding
Italian Cricket farm: crickets breeding
Entonote: consultancy and events organization
Bef Biosystem: black fly soldier breeding (BSF)
Good luck everybody!!
