Not your average protein powder. In this episode, I’m joined by Lucas Becker, co-founder of health food company, Grilo Protein. Since 2016, Grilo has been selling protein powder and energy bars – all made from the latest superfood making headlines – crickets. Originally from Brazil, Lucas was working as a chef in Byron Bay, when he, his partner and a couple of friends decided to start their very first small business together, all from their kitchen at home. Find out why Lucas made the unusual choice to include edible insects as the key ingredient in his products, how consumers in Australia are responding to eating them and what the future looks like for his unique business.
