@Sam-Hughes Hey Sam! Yes, I work on the Trends team. That particular article was inspired by a small chain of events. Years ago, I remember a classmate of mine at uni founded a cricket protein startup. I think it went under and I never really heard more about insect edibles until a few weeks ago, when I saw a friend post a series of Instagram stories, where they were cooking insect meals (the meal kit mentioned in the article). This got me thinking...I wonder where things are now.
Given the very clear focus of many companies "greenwashing" and others with a focus on health, I was even more interested when I realized that insect edibles were more health/environmentally friendly as well.
Then I just went down a rabbit hole of reading a few dozen articles.
