About Yum Bug

At Yum Bug we turn insects into delicious foods people love and recognise like burgers, mince and nuggets. Our bug-based foods aren't just great for the planet but are also great for you with about 30% more protein than beef.

We have had backing from the likes of Holly Branson (Virgin), Peter Norris (Virgin), Carl Pei (Nothing, One Plus), James Frost (Gay Times).


We’re on a mission to change perceptions and take edible insects mainstream. To do this Yum Bug is building a world-class team of fun-loving, ambitious people, and we’d love you to be one of them!
