In an NPR interview, Robert Allen described the advocacy role of his organization (educational non-profit Little Herds) as, “pushing both businesses and regulatory agencies to adhere to the highest standards when creating the rules and laws of this new sector.” He added, “We believe insects can and should be raised and harvested hygienically, organically, antibiotic and hormone free, humanely and at least in part locally. If we set the bar high now, we don’t risk following in the footsteps of the factory farming that we now realize has serious negative side effects.”
