ENTIS IS THE SHARED VISION ON FOOD’S FUTURE BY YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS FROM TURKU, FINLAND.
Entis first saw the light of day in January 2017, when 5 like-minded students crossed paths at a startup- course that had brought together different branches of the university of Turku.
The diverse bunch quickly found their own tune and so the idea of an insect food company emerged.
Itching to make it happen, the team started to work on their dream to make it a reality. Not long after, the first Entis product – 20 grams of dried Finnish house crickets - was launched. It wasn’t as simple as it sounds though, given that at the time of release insects were not legally speaking food. But Team Entis saw this as only a minor bump in the road, and soon the black Entis bags of “eye- candy” found its way onto the shelves of eco-store chain Ruohonjuuri and other smaller retailers.
The pioneering work on the new field of insect food paid off sooner than expected when insects were legalized and approved for human consumption in September 2017. So began a furious product development process and the first fruits of all the hard work can be found on the shelves of Finland’s biggest grocery stores and also in this webstore.
So, ready to get bugged up? You're in good company.
