Alternative proteins is one of the cornerstones of the current sustainability conversation in pet food, and no novel protein is garnering quite as much attention as insects. According to UK Pet Food (formerly known as the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association), there are currently seven species of insects approved by the European Union (EU) for use in pet food. The top three most developed species of farmed insects used are house crickets, yellow mealworms and black soldier flies.
