Bugs On The Menu

Director: Ian Toews Year: 2016 Run Time: 78min

To the entrepreneurs of Entomo Farms, the sound of crickets is the sound of their rapidly growing business. The Goldin brothers raise cricket protein for human consumption, and they’ve seen their farm grow tenfold in 24 months. Interest increased after a 200 page UN report outlined the health and environmental benefits of insect protein. While an estimated 2 billion people eat bugs worldwide, it’s still not an accepted food in the west. Bugs on the Menu follows startup companies, chefs, restaurateurs, cricket farmers, scholars, and scientists as it explores movement to normalize insect eating in the west, as an alternative to chicken, pork, or beef.
