Simply put, here in my home city in S.E. Asia crickets are a food staple, usually captured with traps during the right season they can sell up to 10$/kg if prepared as food. The total population consumption in my area is about 3.000.000kg/year but I believe it is limited by the fact that crickets are only captured seasonally. My target is to sell the crickets for 2.4$/kg when bought by the 1000kg - 2.8$/kg when bought at 100kg - 3$/kg when bought by the kilo. My target production is 60.000kg year. I hope to keep production cost at below 1.4$/kg. Target profit at full production regime is about 60.000$/year. The variety of cricket is acheta domesticus. I have the capital the location and the will, what I need is technical suggestions on how to design the farm shape and about the best way to operate. I mostly worry about stupid mistakes and that all the crickets would die. I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thank you all.
