Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) report recommends insects to become part of our diets

WRAP Report - Featured Image

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) is an organisation that focuses its efforts on moving the world towards more sustainable use of resources.  As such it pays particular attention to waste and how waste can be reduced/turned into value.

WRAP have just issued a report on the future of food and include recommendations that insects should become a staple part of people’s diets because of the opportunity that gives to make better use of waste.

Woven will explore how to link with WRAP in this area as insect farming will require the development of sustainable sources of suitable insect feeding material and this can be a challenge given the variations in the value that waste streams can attract as a result of factors outside of our control.
