Have we reached ‘peak food’? Shortages loom as global production rates slow” and “World may not have enough food by 2050. These are just two of numerous disturbing headlines about the world’s increasing food consumption as a result of the soaring global population. Búi Bjarmar Aðalsteinsson, a product design graduate from Iceland, has created a concept for substainable food: The fly factory.

The fly factory produces insect larvae for human consumption. “They taste good as well,” he says. Although the larvae taste great, the main attraction in Bui’s machine is it’s substainable character and the nutritive value of the larvaes. When it comes to protein, fat and nutrients larvae are really quitte similar to meat. But they differ from meat because they need a lot less food in order to grow the same amount as animals that are being used for their meat. It might be a good alternative for vegetarians as well. Will they have the same complaints about eating bugs as they do about consuming a cow?
