Global Bugs control the whole food supply chain from feed to packing including farming and processing of crickets to entopowder. We strive for the highest food safety meaning that we also aim to fulfill the novel food regulations set by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).
Global Bugs products are marketed as B2C and B2B, all based on our entopowder used in many food applications to boost the nutrition content in general but especially protein and vitamin B12 which pure vegan diets are lacking of.
Affordable and healthy living
Fundamental to addressing the current global nutrition crisis is to deliver food that can guarantee delivery of adequate nutrients to people affected by all forms of malnutrition and the population as a whole.
Through our business model, we have a distinctive opportunity to lead the way by setting a good examples for positive changes in rural areas in Thailand and neighboring countries.
Circular and climate positive
It is clear that we need to do much more to keep ourselves and the planet healthy. The current Covid-19 pandemic is just one example.

Global Bugs Asia was founded in 2016 with purpose to invent new and scalable methods of rearing crickets compared to the traditional methods done for many years in Thailand.
In 2021, we started to plan and design for the next generation of cricket farming using our ento-farm concept. The ento-farm concept is a scalable cricket farm and processing plant that can be set up geographically anywhere. With its optimized size we will reach a large scale low cost production unit that will produce a minimum of 160 tonnes of fresh crickets per annum, equal to minimum 40 tonnes of dry entopowder™️.
In 2021, we started to develop our next generation of Proothie Protein Bar which is bigger with more protein content than its precursor.
In 2020, we launched the sales of Proothie Protein Bar through 10 selected Inthanin coffee shops in Bangkok.
In 2019, we increased our market and sales activities in Thailand where we had discussions with several listed companies in the food and beverage industry. The same year we started to develop our first Granola Protein Bar in three flavours.
The main reasons for us to invent new methods are simple. To learn and develop large scale low cost breeding of crickets and at the same time fulfill the forthcoming demands on crickets as food for human consumption, set by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
In order to follow the continuous work by EFSA we decided to become a member of the Belgian Insect Industry Federation (BiiF) by 2018 to become a part of their consortium of members with purpose to apply for approval of the Acheta Domesticus (House Cricket) as food for human consumption in the European Union.
In 2018, our R&D farm was ready for farming and processing of crickets using a closed environment as per demand for food production set by Department of Livestock Development (DLD), certified with the necessary certifications needed such as HACCP, GHP and GAP through DLD 3rd party auditors.
In 2017 we were certified by Board of Investment (BOI) which is a government agency under the Office of the Prime Minister. Its core roles and responsibilities are to promote valuable investment, both investment into Thailand and Thai overseas investment.
