Entomologist Sarah Beynon and chef Andy Holcroft embark on a mission to bring insect-based food into the mainstream, promoting it as a more sustainable source of protein than meat.

Before pitching to potential buyers, they go to the Netherlands to check that the insect farmers there can supply the quantity and quality of protein that they need and that it is safe for human consumption. Part of the Our Lives strand.
