Positive results of market study Flying Food in Rwanda

The Flying Food consortium investigated the technical and economic feasibility of starting with crickets for human consumption in Rwanda. Interviews of 417 consumers and 120 producers in all 5 provinces of Rwanda show positive results. There is a market demand; consumers are willing to include crickets in their diets as they are tasty and nutritious. Farmers are willing to start up the production of crickets and have trust in a sustainable business. The cricket business will create employment, livelihoods and local access to affordable and nutritious food. In the current COVID-19 pandemic an extra welcome solution!
