At Bugvita we think that it is important to know where our food comes from. That's why we're thrilled to share with you the fascinating journey of our UK grown Acheta domesticus crickets. From their humble beginnings as a nymph, weighing less than 100th of a gram, to their transformation into our high-protein, sustainable Bugvita products - we're committed to creating food that's good for you and good for our planet. Ready to see how we're pioneering the future of food?
