Skye is an Entomologist and Food Scientist who is passionate about sustainable food processes. Ever since she was a child, Skye has been fascinated with insects and she used to explore creeks with her brothers, catching bugs and exploring her natural environment. Skye studied Entomology at University, but combined it with a degree in Food Science to increase her job prospects. Skye wants to ensure a secure food future for everyone and she believes that incorporating alternative proteins like insects, cellular-based agriculture, algae, and seaweed into our diets will be essential. Skye developed a cricket protein powder that can be seamlessly added to various foods. Skye is a dedicated advocate for sustainable and bug-based food products.
