A major food shortage crisis represents one of the greatest threats for humanity. The explosive demographic growth, the growing pollution, the exhaustion of the planet"s resources are the elements that are causing experts to claim that over the next years, humanity will have to radically change its nutrition habits.

By 2030 the demand for food will increase 50% whereas demand for water will increase 30%.

The experts of the UN have already found the solution to the problem, as millions of Euros have been invested in experimental farms for raising insects. The idea is not completely new, as many of the planet's inhabitants fed on insects two or three thousand years ago.
