Interviewed by L’Entomofago, Marco Ceriani, CEO of Italbugs, talks of insects, food and sport supplements.
Insects as food are far to become a reality?
No! We, as many know, produce in Holland and here they are a consolidated reality, sold in the supermarkets. We produce functional food matrices that have little to do with their origin.

I’ve always been working on sports supplements, in the ’90s with my company and then as a consultant for many italian companies. Supplements are special foods, destined for a niche of very demanding people, so you have to know the legislation and what this kind of consumers are looking for; it is not so easy to deal with such a product.
