Insects for food and feed – Welcome to the new Global Stakeholder Directory (version 1.0) on Edible Insects

See on Scoop.it – Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food Ana C. Day‘s insight: "Welcome to the new Global Stakeholder Directory (version 1.0) on Edible Insects! This directory lets stakeholders present their current and past work on insects as feed and food. It also enables users to identify synergies on cross cutting topics such as: nutrition, livestock management, legislation, labelling and investment while facilitating networking at regional/national levels. Stakeholders are invited to join the directory and share contact details, social media channels, and website links which link directly to your publications. If you would like to be part of this dynamic directory please write to Christopher.Muenke@fao.org. You will then be contacted by FAO in due time with further instructions on how to proceed. Users can choose what information is published online OR if you would like to keep your information private, it will be made available only to the FAO Edible Insect Programme. The Edible insect programme would like to acknowledge the work done by Ms. Rena Chen, who developed the “International Entomophagist Contact Directory” and whose data was incorporated in this directory. We also acknowledge the work by Wageningen University in incorporating their previous database." See on www.fao.org

USDA Awards $88,000 Grant for Chicken Feed | Big Island Now

See on Scoop.it – Protein Alternatives: Insects as Mini-Livestock A Texas entrepreneur wants to revive the local poultry industry by making chicken feed from fly larvae. Ana C. Day‘s insight: "Prota Culture was funded by the DOA to develop “a competitively priced poultry feed in Hawaii rendered from organic wastes using a protein-synthesizing, beneficial insect,” said the ag department’s release. Prota Culture simply uses black soldier fly larvae to eat food waste, then uses the fattened grubs to process into feed, said owner Robert Olivier, speaking from his Oahu office. The process also diverts food waste from landfills where it releases significant amounts of the greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere. Rising costs of fuel and feed in Hawaii were largely to blame for the consumer shift from locally produced eggs to mainland-produced eggs that are shipped to Hawaii, Olivier said, taking down a $16 million local industry over the past 20 years."
