Feed the World

If the phrase ‘Feed the World!’ provokes in you a sense of hopeless cynicism and unwelcome Bob Geldof memories, you’re probably not alone. But the idea that edible insects might be the ‘solution’ has been gaining notoriety in recent years, since the UN published its rallying cry in 2013. Packed with healthy fats, nutrients and protein and easy to rear, bugs are a potential answer to food shortage, or so the argument goes.

But like any other food, insects have a context that shouldn’t be ignored – they’re eaten by millions across the world already. “It’s important to remember that this is food, not some abstract compound in an FAO statistic”, says Ben Reade, then Nordic Food Lab chef, in this conference clip. “This food comes from communities, eaten by real people, with cultures, joy and conviviality."

And there’s no joy in bad food, so finding and refining deliciousness is the mission of the BUGS protagonists. Find out more in this clip from the film:
