Insect Processing Innovation Platform

The CDBQ has created an Insect Processing Innovation Platform (PITI) to meet insect processors’ needs. This booming sector includes recovering co-products from the agrifood industry, developing new foods and ingredients, and reducing greenhouse gas production by organic matter decomposition in landfills. Whether developing bread, crackers, chocolate, snack foods, or juices, the possibilities for food processing with insects are abundant.
