Buglery

Global meat production is already considered unsustainable and with the world's population set to hit 9 billion in 2050 we simply do not have the space or the water to continue producing animal protein as we are currently doing. Therefore in the future it is envisioned that we will be reliant on ‘mini livestock’, or insects, as a main source of animal protein. 80% of the world already eats insects in some way, shape or form, especially as a delicacy. In the West however where the demand for animal protein is at its highest we are yet to embrace the thought of eating bugs. I have created a series of specialised utensils for eating insects thus elevating their status from creepy crawly pests to delicacies, as with lobster or oysters. >>>
