Globally, 2 billion people eat insects regularly, but Western consumers have been resistant. Will creative marketing break their habits?
Next Millennium Farms (NMF) in Ontario, Canada, is the first edible insect farm in North America, and a leading supplier in the continent and Europe.
South African Darren Goldin co-founded the business with brothers Jarrod and Ryan in 2014 and it has grown rapidly.
NMF also works with "ento-chefs" to produce attractive dishes, such as these caramel coated cricket cheesecakes.
Crickets are sold in a range of appetizing flavors -- including honey mustard.
This cricket farm is in Thailand, which is among the global leaders of the trade, where 20,000 farms produce 75,000 tons of edible insects.
