Nsenene and White Ants Business to be regulated by UNBS.
The Uganda National Bureau of Standards has kicked off a process of developing standards for edible insects like grass hoppers and white ants.
The bureau is catching up with the fast rate at which Ugandans have turned these insects into business, with some already involved in their export.
The insects are said to be on high demand abroad especially in communities with a high concentration of Ugandans.
Godwin Muhwezi, the Head of Public Relations at UNBS says insects like grass hoppers have become a delicacy, which calls for proper standards.
Muhwezi revealed that the bureau is currently receiving views from members of the public via their digital platforms and other means regarding what should be included in the standards.
