Learn how to set up the cricket business
Based on experiences in Kenya and Uganda, the Flying Food consortium developed a detailed manual for rearing and processing of crickets for food. This manual is a tool for trainers to transfer knowledge on technical and economic key figures. We also developed practical guidelines for farmers and processors, which can be downloaded here for free, after registration.
The following documents can be downloaded after registration:
Please note: with these guidelines you can start-up the cricket business yourself, but it is strongly recommended to organize guidance and support by experienced farmers or Flying Food trainers. There are two options to organize support:
- Become member of a WhatsApp group with other cricket farmers, which provides you the possibility to ask questions and share information and experiences. Indicate at your registration form whether you are interested in this type of support and we will add you to the most suitable WhatsApp group;
- Form a group of at least 15 farmers that are interested to start up with cricket farming in one region (in area smaller than 10 km2) and we will try to organize an on-the-spot training by a Flying Food trainer (which can include costs).
