Patrick Crowley worked as an Environmental Water Planner when he was considering solutions to the steadily growing water supply problem locally and globally. Rather than looking at a short-term solution to this problem, Pat dove into the base cause of this issue – agriculture. Understanding that the food we grow and farm currently uses 90% of our water supply, Pat looked to uncover an alternative food source that could be sustainable. Chapul was born. With the launch for “The World’s First Cricket Bar” on Kickstater in 2012, Chapul validated itself for potential success to become a revolution for the food industry providing food products using cricket flour. After appearing on Shark Tank and signing a partnership with Mark Cuban, Chapul’s slow and steady climb has turned into a sprint.
