Ento - The Art of Eating Insects

Innovation Design Engineering Group Projects

Julene Aguirre Bielschowsky, Jacky Chung, Aran Dasan and Jonathan Fraser

Edible insects are a healthy, tasty and sustainable source of protein. But how could we make them an everyday reality in the UK?

This project is a roadmap for introducing edible insects to the Western diet. This cultural leap could be achieved through a sequence of products and services that will steadily build acceptance. Insects offer a solution to accelerating global food demand. They are more space- and energy-efficient than traditional livestock, and highly nutritious. ‘Ento’ has been designed to deliver a succession of foods and eating experiences that will gently challenge our cultural taboo.
