"One Health, One Welfare, Sustainable Development & Ethics: Insects in food and the attitude of public administration and the private sector in food safety control"
Summary:
Globalization inevitably forms a completely different level of perception in considering and dealing with the problems of human societies and the planet. Confirmation of this reality is the management of the recent corona pandemic. In this expanded context, man, animals and the environment, inextricably intertwined parts of a sole ecosystem, by abandonning their conflictual past, are meant to shape a new condition of existence and survival, following unified policies and strategy aiming to achieve an ideal balance through One Health and Welfare concept.
Ιn this common field, future challenges are presented, the most important of which, according to the predictions of global organizations, is the increase of the human population and consequently the need to find new sources of food in terms of sustainable development and moral order. Global food insecurity therefore directs our attention to alternative sources of food and animal feed, such as insects which are nutritionally beneficial and environmentally and economically sustainable.
Of course, while insects are perhaps the present best alternative source of proteinaceous food, it is important not to overestimate their benefits without giving due attention to important areas such as their acceptance by the consumers’ public (mainly in Western societies), the well - being of farmed insects with ethical implications and the food safety with the legislatory coverage, which are required for the development of this innovative sector.
The necessity of outlining the current reality arises through the investigation of the attitude of the most important actors in relation to the production of edible insects and their products, such as the Public Administration and the Private Sector of Consultants represented respectively by the official food inspectors of the Region of Attica and by the food safety business consultants in relation to animal origin.

The main purpose of the study is to investigate the attitude of these food safety professionals toward the use of insects in nutrition, by conducting semi - structured interviews in a specific group sample. The research objectives are to evaluate the knowledge, perception and beliefs of professionals per sector and discover other factors that may influence the use of edible insects in nutrition related to food safety and security, legislation, sustainable development, welfare, ethics, One Health and Welfare concept.
