Insect Protein as Animal Feed: Why We Need it and How to Scale it

Please Note : This is an old event click here to know more about organizer

: 31 May 2022

Sector: Insects

Type: Webinar

It’s clear that animal feed supply chains in their current form are unsustainable for industrial animal production systems. To keep up with increasing global demand for meat, alternatives to the traditional feedstocks should be considered. So what role can insect protein play?


In this webinar, we will be looking to discuss topics such as:
An overview of the problem:

  • What are the detrimental impacts of the soy and fish meal we need to reduce?
  • Where we are today: Which insect species, technologies and feed supply options are available to scale and bring impact?
  • The regulatory and financial environment needed to make it happen, and which leading animal feed and meat suppliers are taking up the challenge?
  • What regulatory changes and roadblocks remain for waste streams and likely solutions?
  • What does scale look like, and when will the costs come down to make alternative animal feed from insects affordable?
  • The potential impact of large-scale insect production on land use, climate change, and the creation of sustainable animal feed supply chains overall

Hear from speakers:

  • Sara Walton, Sector Lead, Agri-Food, Standards, BSI
  • Arnold Van Huis, Emeritus Professor, Laboratory of Entomology, Wageningen University
  • Cindy Dunston Quirk, CEO and Founder, Scout & Zoe’s Premium Pet Products
  • Andrew Swift, chief executive officer, FERA

This discussion, held in partnership with BSI, will be moderated by Toby Webb, founder of Innovation Forum. Click here to register
