The Cricket Hop Co.

The Cricket Hop Co.

Providing ethical, sustainable, nutritious, delicious and functional foods for the population.

Our Story

We are a British lifestyle and nutrition company founded by chefs in Vietnam, focused on providing the finest, ethically-sourced, and sustainable natural superfoods in all of our products.

The Cricket Hop Co. was inspired by local produce and ingredients during a 2018 motorcycle trip throughout Vietnam. We’ve poured our heart and soul into developing a range of exciting healthy dishes featuring crickets and other superfoods. Our ingredients are grown as nature intended, here in southern Vietnam.

The Cricket Hop Co. believes in trying to use and adopt the most environmentally friendly procedures and processes to produce all of our products. This ranges from the packaging of our products, right down to the feed on which our crickets are fed on. For example, our crickets are bred in the south of Vietnam where the climate conditions are perfect for breeding the insects all year round, in contrast to western factories which rely heavily on temperature controlled farming units to replicate this process at a higher environmental impact.

Our award-winning farm partner grows its own cassava root and feeds the leaves to the crickets. This organic feed is a great nutrient for the crickets. They then produce a high nitrate fertiliser as by-product which is then returned back onto the land to help boost the crops’ potassium and nitrogen content. This cycle ensures the soil quality remains high and there is no food miles or wastage involved in the process of rearing our crickets.
