From our perspective, Poda Foods is just one example of this growing industry. There is an important potential for growing insects for animal feed and human consumption. Social acceptability can be an issue to limit this industry in an urban context today. Progress in terms of research on technical aspects such as breeding and production options of multiple species, as well as the definition of adequate regulation could eventually open opportunities for urban edible insects in the future.
