Thailand to ship powdered insects to Mexico

The crunch of Thailand’s insect delicacies may soon be heard all around the world, after Mexico agreed to import Thai cricket products, The Nation reported.

Mexico’s National Food Safety and Quality Service has approved the import of Thai house crickets (Acheta domesticus) in the form of powder, reports the National Bureau of Agricultural Commodity and Food Standards (ACFS).

“Mexico’s approval … is the first step for Thai edible insects to penetrate the global market,” said ACFS secretary-general Pisal Pongsapich.
