Is cricket protein the next big thing? with Gabi Lewis of Exo Protein

Yes, you read that right. Are crickets the next big thing to hit the food & beverage industry? Exo Protein may have started with a shipment of 2,000 crickets to a college dorm room, but Co-Founder Gabi Lewis has seen the startup through its questionable beginnings.
