Edible Insects: An industry with lots of legs!

Whilst discussing aspects of The Bug Shack’s business model with fellow entrepreneurs at the University of Southampton Science Park, SETsquared Director David Bream said something very interesting:

‘Jenny, I’m convinced this bug industry has got a lot of legs’

Though it’s a great pun, what David meant was that there are a huge number of reasons why people might want to start eating insects. I talk about these quite often, so decided to materialise them in the form of an infographic. I have a couple of new diagrams that I will be testing out on fellow researchers and science enthusiasts at Researchers’ Cafe tonight at Mettrick’s Southampton.
