Welcome to Rebel Food Tasmania, growing edible insects in regional Tasmania from local farm, food and brew leftovers.
Why you ask? To create a new way of farming in Tasmania that grows highly nutritious, delicious and sustainable protein sources from local farm and food waste.
The past twelve months has been a hive research and developing clean, green and healthy insects for people to eat, and enjoy.
This has involved much work to understand our insects including crickets, mealworms and wood roaches. Particularly how they can be farmed in a way that has minimal environmental impacts, provides them with a good quality of life while feeding them from seasonal vegetable, farm and food waste resulting in maximum taste and health benefits.
We farm bespoke locally-grown whole insects. These tasty morsels are available through our early adopter restaurants in Tasmania and our partner specialty food businesses creating new foods and flavours with our unique Brand Tasmania product. These products include Protein Plus Peanut Butters available through select Providores and health food Stores across Tasmania.
We provide educational talks and presentations about how farming edible insects form local farm, food and brew leftovers can create a more sustainable agricultural industry in Tasmania, and globally. Get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow our Instagram account for the insiders look at how we farm, recipes, our stockists and how we are bringing this new ento-prise to the local food economy of Tasmania.
Rebel Food Tasmania is a proud and founding member of the Insect Protein Association of Australia (IPAA). The national representational body for those growing, retailing and supporting the growing insect farming sector in Australia.
