Re: Not for human consumption...
Insect eating is more popular in certain places in Asia where eating fresh, still alive monkey brains is also popular. In Mexico you could try to eat live ants, maguey worrms, and other “delicacies.” I know someone who travels the world eating exotic things such as tarantulas. People eat insects as a way of doing something daring and not as a way of actually satisfying their appetite. World hunger could be better achieved if people would be more conscious about the amount of food that goes into waste while some people have little to nothing to put on their plates. This insect eating thing is just one more way to attract attention. If you want to create a sustainable food supply chain you need to look into plant-based food.

If you use insects to feed your meet you end up indirectly eating insects.

Re: Not for human consumption...
I have seen insect food at demonstrations at agricultural fairs and even though I'm not keen to even try it, there were plenty of more brave folks ready to taste test. I would guess to solve world hunger, the idea does have merit logically, but to get folks to change behavior and meat eating habist would probably take a massivie PR campaign using celebrity bug eaters to lead the way.

Not for human consumption...
I think the winning strategy for making our food supply chain more sustainable is to use insects to feed our meat.. then we still eat meat. Mmmm. meat.

There are already some startups using insects for turning waste food into people food.

Winners and Losers
Typically, a venture fund will have a number of losers, but it needs only a couple of home run-hitting start-ups to be a winner. It will be interesting to see how Chambers fares -- Cisco had some excellent quarters and some supbar ones during his tenure.
