Kaufland Croatia introduces insect-based food range
‘Instead of chips, nibble on crickets; instead of kebabs, have an insect burger on your plate’. That is the idea behind the latest product range of Kaufland Croatia. According to the retailer, insect-based food is already enjoyed by more than 2 billion people across the globe and is healthy, environmentally conscious and very nutritious. The range consists of exotic delicacies such as crispy crickets with spices, cricket flour burgers and insect protein chocolate cookies. The accompanying report states that the production of beef requires 22,000 times the amount of water and about 150 times the CO2 emission compared to insects. Also, insects contain about 3.5 times the amount of protein compared to beef.
