Jungle Bar, introduced by Crowbar Protein, is an insect powered energy bar made with seeds, fruits, chocolate and cricket flour – our special insect element! Jungle Bar is an exciting product that will help normalise edible insects in the western world. Why? Because they taste great, are nutritious and are extremely sustainable to produce. It’s that simple.
Compared to other animals, insects need far less resources to produce the same amount of protein. Whether it’s land, water or feed. Nothing compares to insects, and to add upon that insects emit only fractions of the greenhouse gases that farmed animals do. By introducing a delicious insect infused food product in beautiful packaging, like Jungle Bar, we could lower our dependency on other resource-heavy and polluting protein sources. Jungle Bar will be a part of the solution to the climate issues we are facing today.
This start-up is one of the Top-10 teams in our Grande Finale and won access to Climate-KIC Accelerator. Curious about the pitch during the ClimateLaunchpad European Final 2015? You can watch it here.
