Abstract

A feasibility study to explore application of insects as a sustainable high protein feed ingredient for pig and poultry diets was conducted on request of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation. This feasibility study comprised a desk study and a workshop with participants representing the various links in the “insect chain”. The objective of the study was to list, in a joint initiative of industrial stakeholders and scientists, how insects can be used on a large scale as an alternative protein source in feed for pigs and poultry.
