We believe crickets are the food of the future.
We all moved to Byron Bay looking for a healthy and balanced lifestyle, in a place where we could fulfill our passions about healthy foods, sports and nature.

After a long journey we found out about edible bugs. And that 80% of the world’s nations is already eating them.
