Grilo means “cricket” in Portuguese. According to the dictionary, a cricket is a brown or black insect that makes short, loud noises by rubbing its wings together.
For us it means much more than that.
We believe crickets are real food, a powerhouse of nutrients!
In real food we trust!
For us real food comes from the ground, of a tree or an animal. When we started Grilo in 2015 in the beautiful Byron Bay, our mission was to bring real, clean and nutrient dense food to people’s tables. And also make the Planet a better place for all living creatures.
With that in mind we evolved and today, we are a community of real food advocates and sustainability driven people not bound by convention.
