Why you should join IPIFF

Members have the opportunity to influence EU legislation impacting the insect sector by playing active role in advocacy activities, working groups, and communications initiatives. IPIFF members remain regularly updated on relevant EU policy and regulatory developments.
“Why did we join forces to create the IPIFF? To speak to the EU institutions and partners from the food and feed chain with one voice. As a pivotal actor in this process, we strive to make insect protein available to EU farmers, companies and consumers.”

Heinrich Katz – IPIFF Treasurer
