Insects as Food and Feed – 3rd Annual Conference

Event date: 4/2/2019 - 4/3/2019 Export event

The number of UK producers and users of insect based products, both as animal feed and as a novel protein source in human diets, is rapidly increasing. This conference will draw together the multidisciplinary aspects of this emerging industry and will provide a forum for participants to discuss the progress that has been made over the previous year, exchange ideas and expand their existing networks.

The conference will be streamed live on the internet and a ten minute film of the highlights of each day will be produced.

Day one will focus on insects as part of human diets, while day two will examine insects as animal feed. Both days will begin with a case study followed by three short presentations that outline developments and challenges in that sector. Lunch will be followed by a general discussion. At the end of day one the Agricultural Innovation Centre “Farm 491” will provide a drinks reception in their new state of the art building. The conference dinner will then be held in the universities dining hall.

There will also be a trade fair on both days where companies associated with this industry can showcase their products and services.


1 Day pass including lunch, coffee AM & PM £20.00
1 Day pass including lunch, coffee AM & PM plus dinner £40.00

The UK has a world renowned reputation in agricultural innovation, based on long-established farming industries.  UK farming includes aquaculture, livestock, arable, and horticultural production, and insect farming is becoming another aspect of the UK agricultural industry.

This conference, coordinated by ADAS, the Royal Entomological Society, Multibox and Michelmores will bring together key scientists, industry representatives, policy makers and early innovators from across the UK.
