Sustainability is not only about changing our attitude, but also doing it in practice. In recent years food industries have focused to find alternatives products instead of meat.

As a growing world population on the planet, the food industries are naturally under pressure to make sure that we all get enough food.
A large number of food industries have already tried some alternative products where the main ingredient is insects. However, insects have already been used in many countries and they have been doing it for hundreds of years. Now the Western countries have become aware of them. However, there are still prejudices associated with eating insects in the west.
