Insects can be used to convert waste streams into valuable protein for animal feed that may replace conventional soy and fishmeal that is currently used. The use of insects in feed can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals formulated by the UN, such as achieving food security, improving health and well-being, sustainable production patterns and management of resources and climate action.
The Insectfeed program aims to
1. Investigate insect production, especially focusing on insect health, insect welfare and the intrinsic value of insects.
2. Investigate insect-fed poultry health and welfare.
3. Conduct an economic analysis of the value chain development.
