As Food Plants Catch Fire, Massive Facility Opens to Process Crickets for Human Consumption
We may be mysteriously losing one farm, factory or food processing plant after another to strange and destructive mishaps lately, but now we’ve also gained a brand-new facility that is making food out of insects.
At the end of May, Aspire Food Group announced that in London, Ontario, Canada, it had opened the largest alternative protein manufacturing facility in the world that uses crickets as its base ingredient, according to the manufacturing industry news source Canadian Manufacturing.
“Aspire’s new plant will reportedly produce 9000 metric tons of crickets every year for human and pet consumption. That’s about two billion insects to be distributed annually across Canada and throughout the United States,” CM reported.
