20 February 2017 Insectology sweets was featured in GroenLicht. A dutch television show about sustainable news and facts. Insects can be a solution to several big food and environment related problems, so say scientist and environmentalist. Together with entomologist Arnold van Huis, insectfarm van de Ven and Floortje Dessing, dutch TV host known for her worldwide travels and involvement in fair trade and organic entrepreneurship, Insectology sweets was an important item during this broadcast.
If you may have missed the show, you can take a look via this link starting the particular fragment of Insectology Sweets at 6.24 minutes or watch the fragment above.
The total Insectology project, in which this series of sweets belong to, is about upgrading insects in a context of luxury and food. Through these products, the insect world can be seen in a much more aesthetically pleasing light, thereby increasing the perceived value of these animals and radically changing the way in which we view them.
