Want To Help Solve The Global Food Crisis? Eat More Crickets

Greg Sewitz and Gabi Lewis, two Brooklyn, NY-based entrepreneurs, are taking the consumption of insects to a whole new level. Their company, Exo, produces protein bars that pack a punch with dates, almonds, coconut and – you guessed it – crickets. Their mission is not only to change consumer mindsets but also to provide a new, sustainable food source that will slow the process of environmental degradation. Recently, the team took some time off from power bar production to chat with Addie Thompson (@adelinemt) about their company, the team’s vision for the future of food and why even vegetarians are on board.
