The meat industry contributes almost one-fifth of all greenhouse gases, takes up vast quantities of land, resources and energy, and relies on techniques that contribute to animal cruelty. Not only this, but demand for meat is set to increase with global population rises and higher incomes in developing countries, which could create problems for world food security. The recent unveiling of the world’s first lab-grown beefburger is testament to the efforts scientists are taking to ween consumers off of farmed animal produce, and now Six Foods has created a brand of chips made from crickets that could make insect meat palatable for the western world.
