IPIFF webinar December 2021 – Challenges and opportunities for the European insect food sector

IPIFF webinar DECEMBER 2021

2021 has been a very eventful year for the European insect food sector: several regulatory milestones were reached, including two insect novel food authorisations – for dried yellow mealworm and for dried and frozen migratory locust respectively. In addition to that, the EU Member States authorities’
approved the draft implementing regulations aiming to authorise the commercialisation of dried, ground
and frozen house cricket (Acheta domesticus) and frozen, dried and powder yellow mealworm (Tenebrio
molitor) respectively, for the EU market.

To take stock of these developments and to discuss possible future developments and their implications, IPIFF will organise on 15 December 2021 a dedicated webinar on insect novel food for which we will welcome speakers from DG SANTE (European Commission), EFSA, the European Snack Association (ESA) and of course the European insect food sector.

Have a look at the draft programme here and at the speakers’ biographies here.
