The 2nd International “Insects to Feed the World” Conference is coming up May 15th 2018 in China.
Fortunately, for those who cant make it, the abstracts have been published in advance.
My takeaway from the abstracts:
- Consumer adoption of insects as food in the West has not taken off. Keynote 14.
- Black soldier fly larvae may be the gateway bug. Farming systems are much more developed; many avenues for feed applications. Session 2 – Farming.
- More applications for insect as feed – black solider fly larvae modulating turkey behavior. Session 7.6.
- Insects as food and feed to not address underlying economic/cultural causes of food insecurity. Session 12.6.
