"Insects to feed the world" conference, May 14-17,2014.

The first international conference on insects for food and feed brought over 450 participants from 45 countries together to discuss about the state of the art in research, business and policy making in this new developing sector. The conference was organized in collaboration between Wageningen University and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and was held in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
