Sian Griffiths, reporter for BBC’s “From Our Own Correspondent”, talks candidly about eating crickets, her visit to the cricket farm and worm farm of Next Millennium Farms in rural Ontario, and meeting the Goldin Brothers, Jarrod, Darren and Ryan, the co-founders of the company.
Click to listen to the podcast, and scrub to 4:45, to hear Griffiths talk about the impact that eating insects can have on global food security as well as the nutritional and environmental benefits of eating insects.
Griffiths points out that 2 billion people on this planet already consume insects as their main source of protein; from Asia to Africa, to South America. She bravely tries the ginger cookies made with cricket flour, and the brownies made with cricket flour, (and states how delicious they are!) but passes on the chocolate covered mealworms.
Maybe next time, Sian!
