Coop Switzerland Launches Energy Bars Made From Insects

By November 16, 2017Food trends

Coop Switzerland has followed up the launch of burgers and meatballs developed from insects last August with ‘Insect Bars’, a range of energy bars made from dried crickets, along with dates, apples, sultanas and cranberries.

The bars have been developed by Essento, the same Swiss startup that developed the burgers and meatballs, which were developed from mealworms.

“The trend is for healthy snacks, which allow you to quickly fill up, said Silvio Baselgia, fresh produce manager at Coop. “These energy bars respond perfectly to this demand and insects, via their pleasant taste and their high nutritional values, integrate perfectly with this composition.”
