North America: New alliance for information about the use of insects in food and animal feed

The trend for using insects in animal feed is rising – regulatory changes in this area already have taken place in the USA, Canada and the EU. The North American Coalition for Insect Agriculture (NACIA) is pursuing an expansion in using insects in food and animal feed. There, the NACIA focuses on the support of production as well as the use of various insect species, such as the black soldier fly, crickets, mealworms, silkworms and other species. A planned education institute shall inform the public, consumers and companies about this subject. One of NACIA’s priorities also is the collection of research results for future approvals of feed ingredients.
