Bye 2020, this is what we have for you in 2021

Bye 2020, this is what we have for you in 2021

This year was rough for all of us, full uncertainty and hope. We had loads to reflect upon and learn from this challenging 2020.

How was 2020 in Sens? Bad timing, delays and what saved us

We heard about some virus in January as lots of Chinese left Wuhan to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where we have our farm. Our visits to the farm got cancelled as Thai government put on an even stricter lockdown than we have in Europe. The locked borders got our co-founder Nicolas “stranded” on the farm in Thailand for the whole year (but good for him, he had also no tourists on beaches during his vacations!).


In January we introduced completely new Sens products with great recipes and beautiful packaging. First step was to recall old products and relist new ones, which turned out to be super time-consuming. In March, we were selling new products only in half of stores and then corona happened. Supermarkets got completely overwhelmed with the demand for rice and toilet paper. Obviously, our distribution in gyms and sport centres got closed completely


Hence, online was the way to save the company! We rebuilt our website, started selling and that at least a bit saved our necks. Due to corona, we started also to offer mega packs of products for you to stock up which got quickly popular. Besides that, we delivered 20 000 of Sens products to initiative supporting doctors in hospitals.




What we have for you in 2021? Only the bright future

More flexitarians in the world

Have you heard this term already? In other words, conscious eating of less meat is our vision for the future. We will be publishing a lot of content on how anybody can practically switch to this diet.


Better products, obviously ;-)

Our last month improvements of Serious Bars made them even tastier and our final recipe of Protein Blend is receiving great reviews! Soon, you will see our final version of protein blend, which will be in a plastic-free packaging. Last but not least, we have one secret new product prepared to show you soon.


Daily shipping, less waiting

From January 4th, we will start shipping out products daily. Previously, we were sending out packages only twice a week. Your order will be with you much faster.

Behind the Scenes - How We Reimagined Our Cricket Communication and Remade Our Website

Behind the Scenes - How We Reimagined Our Cricket Communication and Remade Our Website

“Well, nobody wants to TRY INSECT FLOUR,” he said calmly and at that moment I realized he was right. We had just started to sell in supermarkets and this split-second communication of our whole mission was very new and very hard for us. That’s why, at the end of last year, we decided to completely reimagine how we talk about crickets. How did it turn out?
