At KRIKET, we’ve got nothing to hide. We think that a big part of the problem with our current food system is that it’s really hard to know where food comes from and how it is produced.
That’s why we have decided to share the origin of all the ingredients we use.
If you know a more local alternative to the ones we currently source, please share. We’re always striving to improve.
“Why crickets?” you may ask. “Why not?” seems like a more suitable question. You might have heard already: our food system is causing great damage to our planet. It’s degrading our soils and polluting water and air. At the same time, we’re wasting 30% (one third!) of all foods that are produced globally.
We learned that people are ready to broaden their gastronomic horizons.”
In the summer of 2016, Michiel, who was back then still working as an agricultural & food journalist, visited an urban cricket farm in the heart of Brussels. The farm was set up by 3 young and adventurous engineers, who told him all about the sustainable superpowers crickets possess, and how incredibly nutritious they are. Why then, Michiel wondered, can’t I find them anywhere in the supermarket?
But what does it actually mean? We'll give you a quick heads-up. It's as simple as A - B - C...
