Bitty Foods

Improving the sustainability of the global food system with high-protein cricket flour and baking mixes.

Bitty Foods makes delicious, healthy snacks with cricket flour. Their mission is to help alleviate stress on the global food system by popularizing edible insects as a sustainable protein source that conserves natural resources and can feed billions of people. According to the UN, if edible insects become a part of the mainstream global diet, greenhouse gases can be reduced by 18 percent and the average cost of food lowered by 33 percent -- stabilizing the global food supply. Using sustainably raised crickets, Bitty Foods mills them into a fine flour that becomes the basis of its line of high-protein baked goods and baking mixes. Bitty has received accolades in the New York Times, Fast Company, and Vogue, and was named one of Entrepreneur Magazine's 100 Brilliant Companies.

Bitty Foods is no longer operating.
