Endoki is a modern, urban farming project which sells live crickets and cricket powder, an alternative, nutritious, environmentally-friendly source of food which is farmed locally in Johannesburg and has created jobs in the green sector. The Endoki dream is to integrate innovative methods of farming which are sustainable and feasible in urban landscapes, providing access for all to food that is healthy and nutritious.
Crickets are one of the most protein rich and nutritious foods. In addition, farming crickets has proven to be among the most water and land-efficient forms of farming. The initiative seeks to create local employment opportunities and open the door to pioneering research.
