The International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed (IPIFF) – the focal point of the European insect sector in EU’s capital, Brussels – welcomes the entry into force of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2021/1925. This act amends Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 by including a definition for ‘frass’ derived from farmed insects. In line with the applicable EU rules, this entry into force follows the ‘green light’ given by the EU Member States on May 25th this year.
Note: On this occasion, the Secretariat of IPIFF is publishing a factsheet covering subjects such as the benefits of insect frass for soil and plants, as well as the implications of this legislative reform. More information can be found in the document here.
