Making a meal of it
Coming in at number 10 in our list was an article about an extensive study on insect production that is just getting underway.
Ahead of the anticipated sanctioning of insects in poultry feed by the EU later this year, Wageningen University is leading a four-year multi-stakeholder project investigating the viability of insects as a sustainable feed source.
“The main goal is to establish how we can use insects as sustainable feed,” Professor Marcel Dicke of Wageningen University told FeedNavigator.
He continued: “I think this is the most comprehensive insect study to date, as it takes in the total value chain in one study. It reflects growing recognition that insect farms are not the activity of a few isolated companies, but a whole value chain that is being developed.”
