Starting his business when it was illegal to sell insect-based foods, Samuli Taskila launched Entis and began selling cricket bags as “eye candy.” In September 2017, insects were approved and legalized for human consumption. Soon after, Entis released its first product, chocolate-covered crickets, which are now available in over 150 grocery stores across the country. In three years,
Taskila envisions Entis as the leading brand of insect food in Finland and across Scandinavia.
