A brief quote from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) of the approval process in Canada:
The race to feed insects to livestock, pets and people ... 7e140dbb4b

"According to a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) spokesman, companies have to demonstrate several things to get approved: they must identify any hazards in the production system and mitigate them, prove the feed produced provides a purpose, and, finally, show that animals fed the product perform as well as on a traditional diet. ...

... Similar regulatory approval is not needed for formulating pet food made with insects.

“We don’t regulate pet food in that way in Canada,” said David Johnson, CFIA chief of risk profiling."

Grub’s Up: Meet the Entomics team using insects to seek new solutions to the food waste problem ... blem-12139

One significant hurdle that has been overcome recently was the previous illegality of insect-derived protein being used as animal feed in the EU, preventing its use in aquaculture. Since it was such a new approach, it had not been written into EU legislation and didn’t comply with the technical prescription that all animal-derived fish food must be made from animals killed in an official slaughterhouse - a difficulty when it comes to insects. That legislation has since been amended (coming into effect on 1 July) and opens the way for Entomics to make their first steps in the commercial market.

That legislation is linked to in the text and the link is shown below: ... 32001R0999

Black Soldier Fly Larvae Ingredients Receive FDA Recommendation for Poultry Diets ... 09862.html

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommended amendment of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) ingredient definition of dried black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) to include feeding to poultry. The approval of BSFL for use in poultry feed expands the potential for this ingredient as a more sustainable source of protein and enables a nutritious, natural feed ingredient for poultry diets.

Research conducted by EnviroFlight on broiler chickens with Dr. Kimberly Livingston, Assistant Professor in Nutrition, Immunology and Physiology at North Carolina State University, and on laying hens with Dr. Paul Patterson, Professor of Poultry Science at Penn State University, supports the value of these ingredients for inclusion in feed for poultry species. This research was performed with ingredients produced at the EnviroFlight facility that have met the highest quality standards established by the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
