Coop to sell insect burgers in 2017
The supermarket Coop says it will start to sell insect burgers next year.
The move comes after the Swiss government says laws preventing the sale of insects for consumption will be changed in May next year. The move brings Switzerland into line with the EU. Until now nothing could be sold as food unless it was specifically mentioned in the law.
Any food made with insects will still have to be passed by inspectors to make sure the product is safe to eat.
