By judgment of the 27th July 2016, the Administrative Supreme Court judged that there is a serious doubt on the legality of an administrative decision prohibiting the commercialization of whole insects for human consumption provided that the regulation of the 27th January 1997  “novel food” applies only to” food ingredients isolated from animals. ” The Administrative Supreme Court therefore considered that the interim relief judge of Paris Administrative Court was right to have suspended the execution of a prefectural order prohibiting a company’s commercialization of whole insects and ordering the withdrawal of its products. The company was represented before the interim relief judge by its lawyer, Mr Olivier Steck.
