We make appetizing products based on crickets


We need to find new sustainable protein sources in order to provide for a growing population without damaging the environment. At Burgs Foods we found out that crickets are the sustainable and healthy protein source and they taste great!

As consumers however we are just not used to eating whole insects. That is why our team at Burgs Foods focusses on processing crickets into tasty food products that can be used for lunch or dinner tailored towards or western diets. In that way we can make this future protein source accessible for you!
