    Goals / Remit

    IPIFF is an EU non-profit organisation which represents the interests of the insect production sector towards EU policy makers, European stakeholders & citizens. Composed of 80 members, most of which are European insect producing companies, IPIFF promotes the use of insects & insect-derived products as top tier source of nutrients for human consumption & animal feed.

    IPIFF main mission is to promote the wider use of insects as an alternative or new source of protein for human consumption & animal feed through continuous dialogue with EU decision makers (i.e. European Commission, EU Member States authorities, European Parliament & European Food Safety Authority). Notably, IPIFF centres its activities around advocating for appropriate EU legislative frameworks to apply to insect production.

    The association also supports its members in the effective implementation of EU food & feed safety legislations, such as through the promotion and/or development of shared standards.
