    The Insects as food and feed conference This was a two day Conference on Insects as Food and Feed, Special Interest Group and was held by the Royal Entomological Society on April 2-3, 2019 at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England.
    It brought together UK producers and users of insect-based products both as animal feed and as a novel protein source in human diets, where we had the opportunity to discuss the progress that has been made over the last year and exchange ideas.
    Day one focused on insects as food, and day two examined insects as animal feed. Both days begin with a case study followed by three short presentations that outline developments and challenges in that sector.
    Day One Case Study 1 - Andy Holcroft from Grub Kitchen.    Grub Kitchen is based on the award-winning visitor attraction, the academic centre of excellence, and working farm- The Bug Farm
    Case Study 2 - "Fantastic (mini) beasts & how not to kill them" - Gary Needham from Syngenta

    Robert Nathan Allen A.K.A RNA

    Robert Nathan Allen A.K.A RNA

    You're listening to the into podcast and I am your host Ross.
    Thanks so much for tuning in, I really appreciate you giving me your ears.
    Todays show is not a usual show as they will start again in the new year, but more of a bio show where we look at at someone leading the way in the Into world.
    But before we do that I just want to say hi to some of the latest followers, really think I should have started this when I stared the show back in 2017 but the show is now listed to in too many countries and by too many people for me to start but leave me a comment for todays show at the Ento podcast.co.uk  and you could get a shout out on the next one.
    So Hi and thanks for tuning in to Josh K***t, karl schmieder thanks so much for liking the show.
    Ok, as I said earlier todays show is going to be a Bio show and we will be looking at Robert Nathan Allen better known as RNA…and if you don’t know or haven’t heard of RNA then after todays show I need you to go and sit on the naughty step especially if you are a US listener


    Robert Nathan Allen (RNA) for me being outside of the US has to be the biggest spokes person.. advocate of entomophagy I know. Don’t get me wrong there are people who have been doing this longer and people who have more publicity but only just started but RNA has been to use a phrase loud and proud about eating insects and their use as feed as long as the UN report.
     
    He founded little Herds, has worked for Aspire Foods, co founded Grub tubs and is also involved with the North American Coalition for Insect Agriculture
     
    So lets start at the beginning
     
    Little Herds - http://www.littleherds.org/
     
    Little Herds is an educational nonprofit based in Austin, Texas and they teach kids about insects as a resource efficient, nutritious and delicious food or feed through experiential STEAM based programs; family friendly events; public advocacy outreach; and partnerships with educators, universities and other organizations.
     
    STEAM fields are science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics,
     
    Their mission is to educate and empower communities, both locally and globally, to support and promote the use of insects for food and feed as an environmentally sound and economically viable source of nutrition.
     
    Aspire Foods - Aspire Food Group,
     
    Manufactures a variety of food products made from crickets,
     
    Aspire are based in the US and in Ghana
     
    In the US they raise food-grade crickets on a commercial scale, and are actively working to normalise the consumption of insects in the western world.
     
    They use robotics and data collection in their cricket farms in the US enabling them automate the feeding and heating of the livestock and are using the data they have gathered to help them build autonomous robotic systems to farm their insects from hatch-to-harvest.
     
    Their proprietary technology enables rapid and high-fidelity integration of farming techniques, resulting in process standardisation and farm modularity which means their farms can be built anywhere and consistently provide reliable, low-cost yield.
     
    In Ghana they commercially farm palm weevil larvae and run a program which empowers peri-rural farmers to raise palm weevils locally.
     
    From their travels around Southern Thailand they learned the basics of palm weevil larva farming from Thai farmers and later they used their precision-farming principles and adapted the Thai farming techniques for the local African species, reducing the cost and increasing the supply of palm weevil larva., where palm weevil larva had previously only been harvested from the wild.
     
    Aketta - http://www.aketta.com/
     
    Through their Aketta brand they sell their crickets dried whole or powdered along with a range of granola but in March of 2018 they announced that they had acquired Exo, which makes protein bars made from crickets. - https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexknapp/2018/03/08/cricket-food-company-aspire-acquires-cric
