Supermarket group Jumbo is to start selling edible insect products in all its stores next year, the Dutch market number two said on Thursday. The new products mean Jumbo is offering its clients a healthy and sustainable alternative to eating fish or meat,’ the company said in a short statement.
Jumbo stores in Groningen and Haren will begin selling insect products next Friday. These include burgers made of mealworms and the larvae of the honeycomb moth as a ‘crispy snack’.
Jumbo says this is the first time a Dutch supermarket has offered insects for sale
