Our Mission is to grow the insect agriculture industry.
With a focus on supply, we work with farmers to increase their profitability and decrease their costs, scale quickly and efficiently, and promote optimal growing conditions for both staff and bugs to ultimately create a sustainable, consistently high-quality product.
We are building a pipeline to provide a safe and reliable supply chain and scale the industry to support widespread adoption of insects for food, feed, and fertilizer.
To achieve this mission, we focus on four strategies:
- Help farmers start up with fewer mistakes
- Help existing farmers scale
- Build the infrastructure of insects for human use
- Advocate for common sense
Build the infrastructure of insects for human use
Before we’ll see widespread adoption of insects for feed and fertilizer in the U.S., we need better regulatory support. To achieve regulatory support, we need the backing of large-scale food suppliers. And to win over those allies, we need to build up the supply chain to handle the needs of major buyers.
That’s why Big Cricket Solutions takes on projects designed to grow the industry as a whole, collaborates with key partners in agricultural reform, and lobbies organizations like the American Association of Feed Control Officers to add insects and insect-derived meals to product catalogs for fish and poultry.
