Insects may be a valuable food source in the future

Description

The global population is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, and the demand for food is expected to increase dramatically.

In this session, we will highlight "insects" as a highly nutritious food source. We will showcase business and research cases centered upon insects both in Japan and overseas and discuss the reality and potential of utilizing insects for food.
