Founded back in 2013, Entomo Farms (formerly Next Millennium Farms) strives to provide people with a health-focused alternative protein and fiber source that will also have a positive impact on the planet, as a sustainable protein source. As the global population skyrockets to 9 billion people by 2050, we are encouraged to find alternative means of healthy proteins that will alleviate the pressures that have been put on our resources by the production of other sources of protein like beef, soy and poultry. Entomophagy is a viable solution that is not only delicious, but nutritious as well and good for our planet.
Insect protein is the Future of Food.
