Crickets require the 0,05% of the water that cows do to produce the same amount of proteins.

The estimated amount of water needed to produce 100 g of beef is about 2,200 Lt, taking into account the huge amount of water needed for forage crops. The amount of water needed to produce the same amount of cricket powder would be around 2000X times less!⠀

Land usage

One third of emerged lands is already being used for meat production. On average, 200sqm of land are used to produce 1kg of beef. For insects 15sqm are enough.
