Few people will pause to contemplate the effect drinking their morning coffee, or slicing into their evening dinner may be making on the world around them. But if Anteater has their way this may just change.
Based out of BizDojo Christchurch, Anteater “acknowledge the imminent crisis surrounding global food security and food sustainability”, and have been working hard to make sure that on the menu of your favourite restaurant are some delicious insects.
There are real reasons to make a call to find alternative protein sources, and conventional meat industry is ripe for disruption. Abroad, Entomo Farms have three 20,000-square-foot barns in raising 90 million crickets, and Exo is making cricket flour protein bars and raised a 4 million dollar Series A. On the boutique end of the scale, Noma rated as best Resturant in the world by Resturant magazine in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014 is famous for serving antsas part of its menu — something that has been happening around the world for a long time.
