Supermarkets Introduce ‘Edible Insect Kits’ To Help Families Through ‘Global Food Crisis’

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Supermarkets are introducing “edible insects” as part of a campaign to help families survive the “cost of living crisis” and the upcoming “global food shortage,” according to reports.

Bill Gates and his World Economic Forum colleagues have long warned that humanity will soon be dining on insects, bugs and crickets as traditional nutritional sources including red meat and chicken are considered too “carbon intensive” to meet Agenda 2030 and sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Now it appears the global elite have persuaded major European supermarkets including the popular ALDI chain to sell insects to the masses in Europe.

Meanwhile in the US, Democrats have signed a World Economic Forum (WEF) treaty that will allow U.S. food companies to hide bugs and insects in popular foods without telling the public.

Senate Democrats in Minnesota blocked an amendment that would have required foods containing bugs to be clearly labelled on the package.

On April 4, the omnibus agriculture policy bill, also known as S.F. 4225, was passed by the Minnesota Senate. According to the bill’s author, Sen. Aric Putnam, D-St. Cloud, the “overwhelming majority” of the bill related to policy recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

Alphanews.org reports: Before the bill was passed, Sen. Torrey Westrom, R-Alexandria, put forward an amendment that would require food to be properly labeled if it contains either insect products or artificial “cell-cultured” food such as lab-grown meat.

Speaking to his amendment, Westrom said “this just sets forth that if there’s bugs in your food for protein, cricket flour, whatever it is, it needs to be labeled. The consumers need to know. If your meat is cell-cultured and grown in a petri dish, you also need to know. Consumers should have that knowledge as they shop in the stores.”

While Putnam agreed that “consumers should know what they are consuming,” the St. Cloud legislator opposed Westrom’s amendment. In opposing the amendment, Putnam described the issue as a “future problem” and said legislators need to know what fiscal impact the labeling requirement will have before approving it.
