About

It is more important than ever to re-imagine our lives and find a better way to live and keep ourselves healthy.  To eat smarter and healthier.

It is my goal to produce a line of high quality foods made from sustainable protein sources.

The benefits of Crickets vs our normal sources of meat protein
The benefits of Crickets vs our normal sources of meat protein

So I'm going to start with Crickets.  I've been using crickets in my food for over a year now and now I want to make crickets more available to everyone, including those with other food allergies.   If you have gluten allergies, dairy allergies or nut allergies, there will be a version for you.

If you are opposed to meat in general for environmental reasons, than eating insects maybe the way for you to go.  As human quality proteins are very important for our well being.  Insects in general have a been a part of the human diet for a long time and are still consumed in many parts of the world as part of a regular diet.  Crickets maybe a viable starting point for most of us.

 This is the beginning of a journey for me.  I personally eat crickets almost daily, both in my flour mixes and protein shakes and I want share that experience with you.

This funding project is going to help me buy the supplies and inventory needed to take this from a small batch project to a small batch main stream product.

The recipes have been finalized, the suppliers have been sourced and now I just need to get started.

This project will get things started at a level that will make it self sustainable.  

I will start with offering a Basic Flour Mix INFUSED with cricket flour.  This flour mix will come in both Gluten free and keto/paleo friendly so that everyone can enjoy it.

Future plans include upgrading the packaging to a greener more environmentally friendly system and as interest in cricket powder grows I will continue to introduce new products  as previous products become more established.   Things I'm looking at are baked goods like cookies, breads and protein shakes.

At this time things will be kept in smaller batches so that we can keep control of quality and it will be scaled up as long as quality can be maintained ... Quality over quantity.

These are my preliminary labels

I will keep everyone updating on new and updated products

This is my first time using kickstarter or any platform like it and I will refine this is information as I go along hopefully always for the best.

There are countless pages across the internet detailing the health and environmental benefits of eating crickets.   So instead of making this so long that you take a long nap and forget that you viewed this, I'm gonna ask you to email me with any questions you may have and I will talk with you about it till the cows stop farting.

Risks and challenges

I have already researched and prepared a list of quality suppliers. Local where available. I also have a back up list of suppliers just in case necessary volumes can not be shipped to me.

I do not want to suffer quality at any point so if there is a delay in acquiring supplies than there maybe a delay in product deliveries

The biggest potential problem I can see at the moment though would be having to replace a supplier. But of course any multitude of things could go wrong in shipping out of your products, I would immediately notify everyone and answer any necessary questions that arise.

I will strive to meet all expectations and be open in all aspects of development and shipping.
