GOGGY AND JANOS' TALK [WATCH ON YOUTUBE]:

By 2050, humans will experience a giant food gap, while nearly 30% of food produced in the US ends up in landfills. Two opportunities: demand for alternative protein sources and the need for a viable solution to food waste. Two solutions: protein-based ingredients like insect flour powered by food waste, and a new public perception of gourmet insects. Experiential culinary adventures can help!
