Dicke Pushes Dutch Roaches
Consumers in the UK will turn to insects as food as conventional meat becomes scarce, says entomologist. Prof Marcel Dicke of Wageningen University said: "The most important thing is getting people prepared, getting used to the idea. Because from 2020 onwards, there won't be much of a choice for us."
Oh yes there will.
Dicke heads a Netherlands-based four-year programme aiming to produce a scientific and business plan to bring insects to western tables.
I think we can see which side his cockroach is buttered on.
