After a successful first edition, the International Insect Centre and her partners organise a second workshop, which will be held on February 18 2016.

Insects are widely considered as a promising and sustainable ingredient for feed and food. For many entrepreneurs and businesses this is an opportunity to create new business. To start insect rearing is not a matter of trial and error anymore, but information is scarce and not everything is available and researched. This is the reason why the International Insect Centre and her partners organise this workshop to give participants basic information on the insect business.

This workshop gives an overview of existing knowledge and experience and is valuable for any company that wants to start in the insect sector for feed and food on a commercial base or businesses related to insect rearing for feed and food.

What to expect from the workshop:

• Basics on insect biology in relation to rearing
• Insects and its market potential
• Insect production: Current status of production and technology
• Legislation, safety and quality
• Research performed in the Netherlands at HAS and WUR
• Excursion to research facilities at WUR

The lecturers are from Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR), HAS University of Applied Sciences and NGN. All presentations will be done in English.
