Thank you Gayanjith Premalal ! Grasshoppers are considerd Halal for Muslims and are high in demand in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen and more. Today local population collect the in the wild when a swarm of locusts fly in every few years. Availability is limited, not constant and quality is questionable.
Hargol's technology makes grasshoppers available year-round at very high quality. Since today the trade between Israel and the mentioned countries is very limited due to hostile relations, we are building an economic bridge: We are building a partnership with Jordanians and Palestinians to establish a grasshopper farm in special industrial zone between Israel and Jordan. From there the Jordanian partner will ship and distribute the grasshoppers in target markets.
