Grub’s up: great infographic on the future of eating insects

A handy infographic (see below) by Alexandra Sexton outlines some of the case for insects as part of human and animal diets – as well as the key uncertainties and questions for the future.

Advocates of more insect-eating have sold it as a more eco-friendly and low-carbon option – but questions over commercialisation, production methods and livelihood methods are worth investigating. The infographic has been made in support of a debate at the Institute of Development Studies this Thursday. The event’s sold out, but materials will be available afterwards.
