Kriben Govender (Honours Degree in Food Science & Technology) has a chat with the co-founder of Entomo Farms, Dr Jarrod Goldin on the gut health and sustainability benefits of edible insects like crickets.
Dr Goldin has been a Chiropractor and Chiropractic educator for 20 years.
He’s witnessed the impact that food can have on our health. He says we now have to “Consider more than just the health benefits of what we eat; we also have to consider the ecological footprint of our food choices.”
In 2014 Dr Goldin joined his brothers Darren and Ryan, who have 12 years experience farming insects with their business Reptile Feeders, to start Entomo Farms, North America’s first and largest insect farm, dedicated to raising insects, specifically for human consumption.
In January 2015, Entomo Farms worked out of facilities that were 5000 square feet. They now have 20,000 square feet of work and development space as they continue to lead the field of “Bugtrepreneurs”.
Entomo Farms has been covered in the media such as Toronto Life, LaPress+, The Globe and Mail, Washington Post, and more.
