The Future of Protein

AFFIA serves as a regional hub for stakeholders to share knowledge, promote the benefits of entomophagy, clarify regulations and more.
The Asian Food and Feed Insect Association is a non-profit organisation representing the interest of its members from the industry and the academia working with insects as food and feed in Asia.


Established in 2016, AFFIA and its members believe that for the global food chain to be sustainable, ethical and efficient, it needs to integrate insects as a source of nutrients for human food and animal feed.

With this shared passion, AFFIA aims to promote entomoculture and entomophagy both regionally and internationally, support national initiatives and solve challenges, as well as represent Asia in the global insect industry.

AFFIA works closely with the Australian IPAA, the European IPIFF and the American NACIA on issues affecting the insect industry as a whole.


Strengthen the Industry

The insect industry will “come of age” in the coming decade, but to succeed, players must collaborate, share knowledge, promote the benefits of entomophagy and clarify regulations. AFFIA serves as a regional hub for insect producers to strengthen the industry through these activities and more.

Develop Good Practices

Asian cultures have been using insects in their food chain for millennia, but for international trust to be placed in Asian insect producers, good practices must be developed. AFFIA does so while collaborating with relevant Government agencies to ensure frictionless implementation of future regulations.

Guide the Industry

AFFIA works in a very multicultural region with as many regula tory frameworks as countries. AFFIA serves Asian insect interests by initiating or facilitating research and development activities, guiding the industry forward in a sustainable, proactive and responsible manner.
