Insects as food – speaker wanted

Greg Chambers if the Vet Association is looking for someone to talk about insect protein (see message below and contact Tara  (secretary@ento.org.nz) if you can help/advise)

I am looking for somebody who would be interested in speaking to veterinarians on using insects to supplement or replace livestock for food production. I am thinking of our NZVA conference next year in Hamilton (June) or the Industry Veterinarians Branch of the NZVA next year (various meetings through the year).

Veterinarians are of course involved with food production and I think we should consider the potential for insect farming to disrupt conventional farming, similar to synthetic meat and milk.

I appreciate your help!

Kind regards

Greg
