Press statement – Commitment of the European insect sector towards more resilient and sustainable food supply systems – April 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has visible implications on the well-functioning of agriculture and other sectors directly involved in food production activities (e.g. declining agricultural workforce or heavily disrupted supply chains) – including on the insect production sector.
‘We wish to highlight the importance of classifying insect farming as an ‘essential activity’ by national public authorities. The functioning of innovative food-producing systems, providing high-quality solutions for the food and feed chains, has to remain a priority in times of crisis’, declared the IPIFF President Antoine Hubert.
