[08 October, Food Navigator]
The UK government announced a £10m funding package to help build its first large-scale industrial insect farm, with the aim to reduce CO2 emissions related to the sourcing and production of traditional sources of protein and to improve its food security through more localised supply chains. Led by insect farmer Entocycle with a wide range of participating organisations, the project will deliver a plant to convert food waste into insect-based animal feed.
