Loyalist College’s Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis has extended its  project with Entomo Farms for an additional year. The collaboration involves research that will facilitate the global distribution of a nutritional supplement made from crickets. “Entomo Farms is changing the way people think about insects as protein and nutrient-rich food sources, which have the potential to improve global food security while preserving biodiversity,” said Loyalist President Anne Marie Vaughan. “As eating insects is still a relatively novel concept, the findings of this project will be particularly important in informing society’s approval and adoption.” Loyalist
