Legal status information:
These insects are farmed in the Netherlands specifically for human consumption taking into account the rules that apply to the production of food. The conditions are described in the hygiene code which is the guiding principle for the whole chain. This code is currently checked and regulated by the EFSA (European Food and Safety Authority) via the Novel Food application. Our supplier is part of three dossiers submitted via the BiiF (Belgian Insects Industry Federation). This international industry association aims to develop the market for edible insects in Europe.

Breeding information: Grasshoppers are kept in large containers with sufficient living space to feel comfortable. Their diet consists of fresh grass and a mix of grains. Grasshoppers grow by changing their skin several times, after a few weeks they are mature and are harvested. The slaughtering is done by putting the insects to sleep via cooling in the most animal-friendly method.


Processing information: It has been agreed with local and international food authorities that insects must be given a heat treatment. Our supplier has developed a system in which the nutritional value is preserved as well as possible. The drying method for this type of product is freeze drying, the big advantage is that this method preserves the original visual and nutritional value. In their highly hygienic kitchen, optimum care is given to food safety and ensuring traceability.
