Thomas Sorret and Nathan Broemer both arrived at the Songhai Centre in Porto Novo, Benin, to work with our partner’s team on implementing and monitoring the operations until the crickets are turned into powder.
Experts-Solidaires has been working in collaboration with the Songhaï Centre since 2016.
As a reminder, this tool for the development of insects for benin’s food is a project of agricultural development and food security. The aim is to set up a chain of edible insects, from livestock to processing and marketing. This provides the population with a very interesting, ecological and affordable source of protein and trace elements that will help improve the overall food security state.
