Thomas Farrugia interview
From Geoff Fortescue
Insect farming has a huge potential, both environmentally and economically. Insects, such as the black soldier fly, are an excellent source of protein for feed and a broad range of other resources from biomaterials to fuel. There is also a potential to farm insects for human consumption, particularly when already more than 2 billion people regularly eat insects worldwide. However, having only recently been domesticated, insects, unlike other agricultural species, are far from optimised for farming. There are huge improvements to be made in efficiency, quality of product and ease of farming.
