Fabian encountered mead for the first time after an exchange semester in Lithuania in 2015. The encounter served as the foundation for his company, Zzinga. His vision is to re-imagine mead as a cider-like, low alcoholic beverage. But more importantly, his mission is environmental and focused on sustainability, biodiversity and the importance of bees to the global ecosystem. Currently, Fabian is in the development phase as Zzinga seeks to distribute its product to neighboring cities.

George’s company, Burgs Foods, is revolutionizing the food industry with its flagship product–the cricket burger! Burgs Foods distinguishes itself from other insect food companies by focusing on
crickets and processing the insects in a unique way–incorporating them into new, appealing food products instead of the typical presentation of insect foods as novelty snacks or flours. George
hopes to change the perception of eating insects and to create products that make them an accessible and delicious food source for everyday consumption.
