PDX Startup Week: Fueled by Crickets
February 2, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
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.
