This enormous automated cricket farm has a goal to make cricket protein powder more mainstream. Aspire does cricket protein farming for the purposes of cricket protein production. They aim to meld modern technology with tradition to address food security globally. Crickets have animal protein but a much less significant carbon footprint, and traditionally have been enjoyed as a delicious and nutritious food in various cultures.

Based in the United States and Ghana, the "global industry leaders in the edible insect movement" use robots to optimize the production of cricket protein powder. The robot is able to feed millions of crickets 24/7 at Aspire's research and development facility, a 25,000 square foot building that recently opened in Texas. They have plans to do more of this in a farm that's going to be 10 times bigger.
