For our future

By 2050, There will be 9 billion inhabitants on earth. The global meat production will have to double. Nowadays, livestock covers 70% of the total agricultural surface, which corresponds to 30% of the total surface or our planet. It’s simple, if we continue down that path, we’ll run out of space!

Together, we can consider a different future for our planet.
A future where insect consumption is not seen anymore as a question but rather as obvious.

The production and consumption of insects must evolve to be more integrated in the mindset and culture if we want to be able to fulfill the needs for food and proteins of 9 billion people.

It’s a natural product beneficial to health and the environment.

E-Bugs will provide you a fine quality raw material with which you will be able to let your culinary creativity taking over. Travel back in time and space by breaking the gastronomic and cultural barriers!

For you, for us!

"Never question the bravery of the French; they are the ones that discovered that snails were edible."
Doug Larson
