Company Description

Coast Protein makes cricket-based protein powders and energy bars.

They’re dedicated to developing “new solutions to old problems,” placing particular importance on ensuring their business promotes sustainability, healthy living, transparency, and an adventurous spirit. As a member of 1% for the Planet, the company donates 1% of its sales to environmentally-focused causes. The company also commits to ensuring it avoids water-intensive crops and exotic ingredients to produce its powders and bars.

The company was founded in 2015 when its founders began searching for a high-quality protein that could be harvested sustainably. They learned that crickets and other edible insects are eaten daily in many countries, and — gram for gram — use a fraction of the resources required to produce conventional options like chicken and beef. They’re out to “make eating insects normal” by touting the health benefits: crickets are a complete protein, and a good source of vitamin B12 and iron.

Their products are available for purchase via the company’s website, and in retailers across Canada.
