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!
