PDX Startup Week: Fueled by Crickets

February 2, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

See this event on Facebook

Did you know that Oregon is home to 3 cricket protein companies? That’s right. We are lucky to have 3 startups fueling the emerging industry of using bug protein as a nourishing and sustainable protein source for people and pets. If you came to our sold-out Cricket Cook-Off last month, you’ll know that crickets are super tasty, versatile, and highly sustainable.

Join us during Portland Startup Week for a conversation with your local cricket farmer and cricket flour providers. Learn why crickets might just become Oregon’s newest industry. We’ll also have some tasty cricket snacks for you to sample.

Cricket companies:
• Poda Foods, a cricket farm launching in 2016 and winner of PDC’s 2015 Startup PDX Challenge
• Thinksect, producer of finely ground cricket flour and graduate of PCC’s Recipe to Market Program
• Cricket Flours, producer of 100% cricket flour, flavored cricket powders, and cricket instant oatmeal
