Who's behind BUGSfeed?

BUGSfeed is inspired and funded by the documentary film BUGS, and run by a dedicated team whose main aim is to intrigue you. We try to answer the ‘big questions’ and the smaller ones too, bringing in expert opinion and taking you into this world of entomophagy that we’ve become so curious about.

We welcome guest writers and regular contributors – please give us a buzz if you'd like to be part of BUGSfeed. 

Like the Nordic Food Lab researchers, the BUGSfeed crew is a multinational team: we're a mix of Northern Europeans from Denmark, Germany, and Scotland. Based in Copenhagen and Edinburgh, we conceived BUGSfeed as the ideal online platform to complement BUGS the film – and not as experts on entomophagy. But we’re getting there! As we're building BUGSfeed we’re learning more and more about edible insects, and we’re excited to have you with us on our journey to explore further.

So join in and give us your input. What are you curious about? How do you react to the idea of eating insects? And don’t worry – we’re not here to sell you a product or persuade you to eat bugs. We’re just here to find out what it’s all about.
