Thai entrepreneur pushing insects as the snack of the future

In this Oct. 3, 2019, photo, Thai entrepreneur Thatnat Chanthatham shows crickets at Smile cricket farm at Ratchaburi province, southwest of Bangkok, Thailand. Insects have long been part of the diet of poor rural Thais, but Thatnat - inspired by studies showing bugs are high in protein and raising them does minimal damage to the environment - hopes to broaden the market for baked bugs by packaging them like potato chips and selling them in convenience store and supermarkets.
