Certified cricket flour at the lowest price in the world
Bugsolutely cricket flour is made with 100% dried and milled house crickets from Thailand, reared in a GAP (Good Agricultural Practice) certified farm. The cricket farming and the cricket flour processing take place within the same newly built facility. We operate according to the highest standards: we use food grade egg trays, industrial feed not containing animal ingredients and sterilized water in every step of the process. We make cricket flour with advanced technologies, including a special hot air drying process that maintains the typical nutty, roasted flavor but results in light brown color, mild smell, long shelf life and a thin powder.
The cricket powder factory is HACCP certified and Thai FDA registered. All processes are tracked and respect international food standards.
Product customization is possible, on demand, for bag sizes and labels. Whole roasted dry crickets can also be ordered at the same price of the cricket flour.
Bugsolutely sells the cricket flour ex factory Bangkok. If you do not have a shipping agent in Thailand, we can help you finding one. Our flour has been exported to a number of countries, therefore we can help you understanding the requirements for clearing your custom and matching your national food regulations.

CRICKET FLOUR PREMIUM PACKAGING
We use special bags to protect the cricket flour and increase shelf life. The inner part of the bags is made of food grade linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). The outside layer is made of PET, while in the middle the material is aluminum. These bags are stronger than the simple aluminum bags used any most of the flour makers, and it is the result of our experience with international shipments. Thanks to our premium bags, the risk of cricket flour spilling or bag breaks is close to zero. We deliver our flour in these high end bags to all out customers at no extra cost. Bags are available in 1 kg and 5 kg size, at the customer’s discretion.
We sell EXW, but on demand, we can deliver at Bangkok’s port, adding transportation and custom fees to the cricket flour cost. Customers can choose between 1 kg bags (135x200x60 mm) or 5 kg bags (360x250x100mm).
Bags are then placed in carton boxes (40 x 60 x 14 cm) for the shipment (16 pieces with 1 kg bags, 2 pieces with 5 kg bags). Bags and carton boxes are included in the flour price. Plastic pallets and any additional document (for example, Health Certificate, Certificate of Origin, etc), lab test on demand, custom order boxes, etc. are subject to extra charges.
This is an example of pallet loading for 500 kg of cricket flour:
– standard pallet: 120 cm x 100 cm (48 x 40 inches)
– 112 cm (44 inches) height
– 31 carton boxes in total (each 16 kg except 4 boxes 17 kg)
Total weight 530 kg)
